  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Combine the honey, vinegar, soy sauce, and jalapeños in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

  4. Pour the glaze and jalapeños over the salmon. Spoon or brush glaze onto the fish.

  6. Spoon glaze over the salmon, then squeeze the lime over the salmon. Garnish with chopped cilantro, if desired.
