1. To make the baked honey garlic salmon: Position a rack in the middle of your oven. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with a large piece of foil to fold over and seal to create a packet.

2. In a bowl, combine honey, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, oil, paprika, red pepper flakes, Cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine and set aside.

3. Place the salmon onto the lined baking sheet. Pour the honey mustard mixture over the salmon, and spread evenly over the fish. Sprinkle with a good amount of salt and cracked pepper. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon to cover and completely seal the packet closed so the sauce does not leak.

4. Bake salmon in foil until cooked through, about 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish and your preference of doneness. Carefully open the foil, and broil under the broiler for 2-3 minutes on medium heat to caramelize the top of salmon. Garnish the baked honey garlic salmon with cilantro and serve immediately with lemon slices. Enjoy!

Tips for the Honey Garlic Baked Salmon in Foil

  • In general, it is better to not overcook salmon fillets. If you like the salmon edges a bit crispy, just open the foil pack and broil the salmon in the oven for 2 minutes at the end of cooking.
  • If aluminum foil is a concern for you, you can use parchment paper to make the salmon foil pack. Another way to do it is to line the foil with parchment paper, the foil will ensure the salmon packet is well sealed.
  • Make sure to taste the sauce and adjust the ingredients to your taste. Some people can find it a little too much lemony for instance. The recipe makes a good amount of sauce, you can keep some and reduce it in a saucepan for another use.
  • Skip honey if you’re on a low-carb or Keto diet.

What type of salmon is best for baked salmon?

    The Salmon was lovely. I would probably place less honey into the mixture next time.

    Oh my God so great and we live on the West Coast so have eaten salmon every way. As per previous comments-used 1/3c honey ( creamed) and 1/4 c dijon. Baked 10 min then switched to broil 5 min and cooked perfectly. Basted with sauce before broil. Will broil high next time for crispier coating.
