This is a very simple meal to make and it comes out perfect every time I have baked it. I personally get nervous with fish because I am not sure how to cook them but this is flavorful and flakes so nicely. My husband does not like salmon but loves this dish! So that is a win! The kids ask for seconds as well.
First, I am all about purchasing wild caught fish. I avoid farm raised. Look at the beautiful color in this wild caught salmon. The price is higher but it is going into my families bodies and I don’t make this every week. Place your salmon out on a large sheet of tin foil.
Gather all your ingredients first. For the honey I enjoy getting local honey from my farmers market. I have heard great things with it helping with immune support and with seasonal allergies.
Now, mix together your honey, minced garlic, olive oil, white wine vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper. I mix it with a whisk.
You will fold up all sides of your foil around your salmon to keep the mixture from escaping and making a huge mess. Spoon the honey mixture over the salmon.
After the mixture is completely covering the salmon you will fold the sides of the foil over the salmon to cover it completely and seal it closed. I had to add extra foil over the top to seal it really well.
It will cook at 375 degrees about 20 minutes or more depending how thick the salmon is. Serve right away with a seasonal vegetable and some quinoa or rice.
- ¼ cup honey
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 1 TBS olive oil
- 1 TBS white wine vinegar
- 1 TBS fresh thyme leaves (I used 1 tsp dried thyme)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 pounds salmon
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with foil.
- In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the salmon of course.
- Place the salmon on the prepared baking sheet and fold up all 4 sides of the foil. This prevents the honey mixture from spilling. Spoon the honey mixture over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon to cover it completely and seal it closed. I had to add extra foil over the top of the thick part of my salmon.
- Place into oven and bake until cooked through, about 15 -20 minutes. Mine took an extra 5 - 10 minutes longer since my salmon was thicker.
- Serve immediately. Delicious!!!
