    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 400 F.
    • Line a casserole dish with foil paper (optional for easier cleanup).
    • Place salmon fillets in a casserole dish.
    • Brush salmon very light with sesame oil.
    • Sprinkle generously with spice rub mixture.
    • Set aside.
    • In a saucepan over medium-low heat, add honey, soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, lemon juice, vinegar, sesame oil, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and smoked paprika.
    • Stir to combine.
    • Bring to a very light simmer.
    • Let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Do not boil.
    • Remove sauce from heat and let cool until warm.
    • Pour over salmon.
    • Bake for 10-14 minutes or until fish is tender and flaky.
    • You may also broil on low for the last few minutes to thicken up the sauce, but keep a close eye on it.
    • Remove salmon from oven and let sit for a few minutes. The sauce will thicken as it sits.
    • Serve!
