Oven Baked Honey Salmon


Two things.

Firstly, this salmon is delicious.

Secondly, why aren’t salmon fillets bigger?

This salmon dish is so very easy and so very tasty but I do have beef with salmon dishes – there’s not nearly enough fish there for me. I’ve considering having two fillets but then the £££ of this puts me off. Is it just me that is a big fat salmon pig?  I probably use more sauce ingredients than you need but I like things saucy, ooh err.

Salmon cooked in foil in the oven is probably one of my favourite ways to cook salmon – I even do it when we’re camping now, normally just with some butter and lemon but this recipe uses such basic ingredients I think I will add this to my camping notebook too!

A super quick and easy dinner – I hope you enjoy!

Oven Baked Honey Salmon


6 tbsp honey
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves (or a good sprinkling of dried if that’s all you have)
Pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 salmon fillets


Preheat oven to 180c/gas mark 4 and line a baking tray with foil.

In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, garlic, olive oil, white wine vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper.

Pop the salmon fillets on to the foil and fold up the sides – you want to create a kind of bowl so that the honey doesn’t run out… Spoon the honey mix over the top of the salmon and fold the sides of the foil over the top to make a sealed parcel.

Place the baking tray into the oven and cooked for about 20 minutes.

Serve this immediately with your choice of accompaniment – we did green beans and new potatoes, but equally this would be nice with some rice.

  1. Sounds simple and tasty – I am always a bit scared of cooking fish in case I poison people (I am a veggie so am never sure what it is supposed to look like when it is done!) but I reckon this would be easy enough for me to not go wrong!

  2. My other half would be absolutely delighted if I presented him with this for dinner, he loves fish. I’ve always wondered why salmon fillets aren’t bigger too and they’re not the cheapest either! Your dish looks delicious.
