Sometimes you make a recipe even though you have no clue what you’re going to do with it. I originally intended this recipe to be a sauce for a nice piece of white king salmon we picked up from the boys at Wilson Fish. However, the sauce was so good that I’m sharing the recipe for it alone, sans salmon. I want to use this sauce on everything. It’s sweet, a tiny bit spicy, bold, and subtle. I want to drink this sauce. In fact, you could probably even serve it as soup. Yes, it’s that good.
We served it over the salmon, but over the next week, I’m going to be serving it over, under, and alongside just about anything I can.
