Ancho Honey Basted Salmon - The salmon is basted with a sauce which uses honey, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, garlic, Cointreau and ancho chile paste. Serve the salmon with roasted fresh asparagus and a simple quinoa.
If you need to make your own ancho paste then make it a day ahead of time to save dinner prep time.
Place all ingredients, except for the salmon, in a bowl and mix.
Pat salmon dry and coat with the blended mix.
Place on a broiler pan and broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 10 minutes. Salmon should flake easily with a fork
