Honey Garlic Butter Salmon in Foil


¼ cup butter

1/3 cup honey

4 large cloves garlic, crushed

2 tbs fresh lemon juice

2 ½ pound fillet of salmon

sea salt, to taste

cracked pepper to taste

Lemon slices (to serve)

2 tbs fresh chopped parsley



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking tray with large piece of foil, big enough to fold over and seal to create a packet.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter low-medium heat. Add the honey, garlic and lemon, and whisk until the honey has melted through the butter and the mixture is well combined.
  3. Place the salmon onto the lined baking tray. Pour the butter/honey mixture over the salmon and using a spoon, spread evenly over the salmon. 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 packed closed so the butter doesn’t leak out.
  4. Bake until cooked through, 15-18 minutes, depending on the thickness and preference. Open the foil, being careful of any escaping steam, and brill/broil under the grill/broiler for 2-3 minutes on medium heat to caramelize the top.
  5. Garnish with parsley and serve with lemon slices.
