I’ve loved salmon since I was just a kid, but lately it’s been all I can think about when I go to plan dinner for the week. It’s a good thing we live only fifteen minutes from Costco and don’t mind frequented the establishment for a large salmon fillet every weekend.

This honey, lemon, and garlic version is one of my all time favorite salmon recipes. I can’t get enough of that sweet and tangy sauce glazed over this tender and flaky baked salmon. Baking it in foil keeps all of that yummy flavor locked inside so it soaks into the salmon instead of running out all over the pan. This salmon is so easy and so tasty, it will definitely become a go-to meal in your house.

  2. Stir together melted butter, lemon juice, honey, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Pour sauce over salmon and fold the rest of the foil over the salmon. Bake for 15 minutes.

  3. Pull back the edges of the foil to uncover the top of the salmon fillet and set oven to broil. Cook for another 5-7 minutes. Garnish with fresh herbs and cracked black pepper (if desired) and serve.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is perfect for a very large salmon fillet. if you are using a small to medium sized fillet and want a bit lighter version, feel free to half the ingredients.

Hi! I just wanted to say thank you for posting this recipe. My hubby and I just made this (with a large salmon filet from Costco), and it was amazing my10 year son even had seconds!!
I’ll look forward to more of your posts in the future.

    I am so happy to hear that Jennifer! I hope you love some of my other recipes too! 🙂


I made this this evening. The sauce of lemon, garlic, butter and honey was delicious. The fish in your photo has some char, mine didn’t char at all, maybe I will broil the last 5 minutes next time. I put some of the sauce on white rice, amazing!
.

Would it be better for me to skin the fillet or cook it with its skin?

    I prefer to skin my salmon first but honestly either way works!
