Salmon with Honey-Soy Glaze with Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes

This was a recipe that my husband adapted from Gourmet. It originally called for Maple Syrup. We like it far better with honey. This should get you 2 meals worth, but honestly I always eat more than ¼ lb of seafood as does my husband. You can expect to pay about $4/lb for salmon at Costco and about 6.99 (on sale) at a seafood shop. Add it mash potatoes ($1.5) and green beans ($1) and you are at just over $10. You may not get 2 meals for 4 adults out of it but you will easily get a meal and lunch for two/ or two meals for 2 adults and 2 pre-teen children.
¼ c. soy
¼ c. honey
2lb salmon
Boil honey and soy in saucepan over medium heat. Reduce to about 1/3 c. (about 5 minutes).
Heat oven to 450.
Pat salmon dry and season with salt and pepper. Reserving 1.5 tablespoons of glaze for later use, brush salmon with glaze. After 5 minutes brush with remaining glaze. Put salmon in oven and let cook for 10 minutes. Turn on broiler and broil 4-5 minutes. Brush with reserved glaze (use clean brush) and serve.
