A note about serious food allergies

We've been on a hot honey kick at Home Chef HQ, and once you taste this, you'll be in full agreement. The combination of red pepper flakes, honey, and butter pairs perfectly with the flaky, delicate salmon. This tastebud explosion is served with a side of zucchini and tomatoes. We plan on spreading the hot honey gospel for menus to come.
