1. My salmon fillet was actually 3 separate pieces, in the event that you cannot get the large piece of salmon use this little trick. I just nestled them together so they make one large piece and the glaze acted like a glue.
2. You can actually let the salmon stand for about 15 minutes with the glaze on it so that it permeates the fish a bit better.
