In a small bowl, mix the glaze of your choice. Use the measurements given or adjust to your taste, whatever ratio of spicy-sweet you like.
Arrange salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Brush or spoon glaze all over the salmon. Bake in oven for about 12 minutes.
Let salmon rest for about 5 minutes, loosely tented with foil, then serve. If you used salmon with the skin, when you serve it, use a spatula and remove just the fish and leave the skin on the pan. It should come off very easily.
