Garlic Butter

Baked Salmon

My Go-To Recipe:

Garlic Butter Baked Salmon in Foil comes together in just 20 minutes! This easy salmon recipe is slathered in a honey garlic butter sauce and then baked in a foil packet for the perfect flaky bite.

1. Prep Work

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with a large enough piece of foil that you could fold over & seal to create a packet later on. Place salmon in the center of the foil.

2. Prepare Lemon Butter

In a small bowl, add garlic cloves, dijon mustard, butter, lemon zest, honey, smoked paprika, basil, red pepper flakes, pepper and salt. Mix everything together until combined.

3. Season Salmon

Pour lemon garlic butter mixture over the salmon and then fold the foil up around it to create a tent.

4. Time to Bake

Place in oven and bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until your desired doneness.

5. Turn Up the Heat

Remove salmon from oven and turn broiler on HIGH.

6. Broil

Unfold the foil, so the salmon is uncovered. Place salmon back under broiler for 2 to 3 minutes till there is slight browning over caramelization on top.

7. Garnish

Remove from oven. Garnish with chopped parsley and lemon wedges. Serve.
