Bee Raw's Zeke Freeman's Miso Glazed Salmon with Buckwheat Honey

By Marcus Samuelsson |

This dish is made with buckwheat honey, which some call the Guinness of honey. It has a bold, rich taste that perfectly offsets the salmon. The fish in this dish can also be replaced with another similarly fatty fish.
