pan seared salmon with a sweet 'n spicy glaze {best salmon i've ever had}

i bought some salmon fillets at whole foods this past weekend and knew i didn't want to gussy them up to much.. but did want to bring out their flavor.. so while on pinterest i saw this recipe here.. and knew that was the one i wanted to try.. i didn't change much of anything just a few ingredients.. the sauce is amazing.. i think this might have been the best salmon i've ever had, not made, but ever had.. seriously try it.. it's easy and delicious.. i served it with this healthy fettucine cauliflower alfredo which was perfect with it.. pete has decided this might his favorite meal..
