  • Sheet pan
  • Glass measuring cup or bowl
  • Foil


  • 1.5 to 1.75 pounds Salmon skin on, fillet
  • 1 Lemon sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tbsp Lemon Juice from about 1 lemon
  • 2-3 tbsp Honey
  • 5 cloves Garlic garlic, finely pressed or minced; or to taste
  • 1 tsp Salt kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 2 tsp Parsley fresh, finely chopped for garnishing


  • Preheat oven to 375F. Place salmon on a sheet of foil (with the longer side parallel with the
    longer side of the sheet pan) with the skin-side down. Raise the edges of the foil up about 2
    inches (or enough so that when you pour the buttery mixture over the top it will be contained in
    the foil).
  • Nestle lemon slices underneath the salmon, spaced evenly around the fillet; set aside.
  • To a microwave-safe glass measuring cup or bowl, add the butter and heat on high power to melt,
    about 1 minute.
  • Stir in the lemon juice, honey, and garlic. Pour or spoon about three-quarters of the mixture over
    the salmon; reserve remainder.
  • Evenly season salmon with salt and pepper.
  • Seal up the foil. Likely you will need to add another sheet of foil on top in order to seal it. Crimp
    or pinch the top and bottom pieces of foil together; get it as air-tight as possible but it doesn’t
    have to be perfect. If you have time, set aside to marinate for about 10 to 15 minutes (enhanced
  • Place foil pack on a baking sheet and bake for about 17 minutes.
  • Remove baking sheet from the oven and remove the top piece of foil or open up the packet so
    salmon is exposed but keep the edges raised to contain the buttery mixture.
  • Set oven to high broil.
  • Spoon the reserved buttery mixture over the salmon, if desired. Use your judgment and if there’s
    already lots of juice you don’t need to add it because you don’t want it to start leaking. If you have
    extra buttery mixture, it’s great served over the finished dish.
  • Broil salmon for about 5 to 10 minutes, or until salmon is as golden as desired.*
  • Optionally garnish salmon with parsley and serve immediately. Salmon is best warm and fresh
    but will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 3 days.


*Tip: You don’t have to broil on the top rack, you can use the second rack, and while it will take longer,
there’s less chance of it burning. Keep a close eye on it because all broilers are different and you don’t
want the salmon to burn. Exact broiling time will depend on the size and thickness of the salmon,
climate and oven variances, and personal preference.
