Hot honey sounds like hip-hop slang from the early 90s (and it probably is!) but its also the perfect glaze for this salmon: a bit of sweet, a bit of heat, and a lot of deliciousness for the tender, flaky fish. The potatoes also get "loaded," but this isn't slang. This is potatoes garnished with buttermilk dill crema, adding a bit of tangy delight. This meal is phat with the ph.
