salmon glazing frustrations....

Here’s a culinary question rather than a recipe. Anyone any idea how to turn a marinade into a glaze?
I’ve taken to marinating salmon steaks in a mixture of honey, soy sauce, shredded ginger & five spice prior to grilling. Very tasty indeed but I’m wondering of its feasible to get this mix to coat them better- glaze style. I’d initially thought the honey would give it a bit of ‘grip’ but it doesn’t seem to…..
Any experience glaziers in our ranks?

Try thickening it first, with more honey or reducing it in a saucepan. YOu could use a honey ham glaze recipe to get the proportions more towards a glaze.

Hm.. boiling the mix down, that's got to be worth a try. Thanks...

As Kev said, reducing, until it is thick enough. Better than thickening, most of the time. If reduced too much just whisk in a little butter before adding glaze.

rather than a fast boil, i might suggest a longer gentle simmer at about 160 - 170 degrees. Less impactive on the flavours if you have time.

With that large an amount of liquid it can take a long time to boil down and some of the gingery aroma will be lost in a long boil.

Often it is possible to sieve the sauce/glaze/marinade and just reduce the liquid part before adding the other ingredients back in; otherwise a slow reduction should work well as Jazzaferri suggests.
