I wanted to make some salmon, and we already had some Thai Tofu, so I thought about making salmon with a hint of Thai. I figured Hoisin Sauce is as good a place to start as any. Hoisin Sauce, or 海鮮醬, literally means "seafood sauce" in Cantonese. A bit of a misnomer since it contains no seafood. Anyway, from there, I thought back to our Thailand trip, and started throwing in some garlic, onions, sesame, and of course, you can't forget fish sauce, soy sauce, and some heat! Thai food is known for its balance of sweet, salty, sour, and spice, and this sauce had a bit of sweetness, but I wanted a bit more, so I added in a little honey and a bit of ketchup to bring a sweet sourness to the table. Mix it up, cook for a bit, and you've got yourself some tasty BBQ sauce or marinade!
