Honey-Soy Glazed Salmon with Spinach and Peppers

Recipe taken from:
Real Simple, February 2010

1 tablespoon honey
3 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 skinless salmon fillet (1 1/4-pound piece), cut into 4 pieces
kosher salt and black pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
3 bunches spinach, thick stems removed (about 12 cups)
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

1.Heat broiler. In a small bowl, combine the honey and 1 teaspoon of the soy sauce.
2.Place the salmon on a foil-lined broiler-proof baking sheet and season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Broil for 5 minutes. Spoon the honey mixture over the salmon and broil until the salmon is opaque throughout, 2 to 5 minutes more.
3.Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and cook, tossing occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes; stir in the ginger.
4.Add the spinach and ½ teaspoon salt and cook, tossing, until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of soy sauce. Serve with the salmon and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

Notes & Tips:
I accidently forgot to broil the first first then put the glaze on it, I put the glaze on before I put it into broil. About halfway through the time, I pulled the fish out and spooned the glaze that had pooled around the bottom back on the top. We really loved the spinach and peppers, the salmon was good but nothing special.
