Honey Garlic Butter Salmon Wrapped in Foil

Honey Garlic Butter Salmon Wrapped in Foil

Serves 2

25 mins

Salmon steak drizzled in browned butter infused with garlic and honey sounds delectable by itself. Now, imagine that wrapped in foil to be oven-baked or grilled for a golden, caramelized, and extra flakey finish. While there are all kinds of flavors going on, you don’t have to sweat over the preparation. With minimal ingredients, you can expect a no-fuss no-muss honey garlic butter salmon which is sure to be your go-to dish whenever you need something simple but with plenty of yum. 

Ingredients
  1. 1.2 kg | 2 1/2 pound side of salmon
  2. ¼ cup butter 
  3. ⅓ cup honey
  4. 2 slices Lemon (Squeeze to juice)
  5. Handful of broccoli
  6. A half handful of cherry tomatoes
  7. 4 garlic cloves crushed
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  9. Aluminum foil

Steps

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F | 190°C. Line a baking sheet with a large piece of foil. Make sure it’s big enough to cover and seal while creating a packet. Alternatively, you can also use two long pieces of foil overlapping each other to create the said packet. 
  2. Wash your salmon, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes
  3. Sprinkle some salt & pepper onto the salmon.
  4. Dash some olive and pepper to the broccoli.
  5.  Preheat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the honey, garlic, and lemon. Whisk until the honey has melted through the butter to make sure it is well combined. 
  6. Place the salmon on the lined baking tray. Pour the butter and honey mixture over the salmon. Make sure it has spread evenly over the salmon for the beautiful flavors to cook just right. A pastry brush, spoon, or spatula will do the trick.
  7. Put the slices of lemon and cherry tomatoes on the salmon. Line the salmon with broccoli.  
  8. Fold the sides of the foil over to completely seal the packet closed to ensure the butter doesn’t leak.
  9. Bake until cooked through. This could take anywhere from 10 to 18 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish and your preference on how well it’s done. Avoid constantly opening the foil to check your salmon. 
  10. Once out of the oven, carefully open the foil. Be wary of the escaping steam. You can serve it as is or use a griller/broiler for 2-3 more minutes for a more caramelized, crispy top with a tender, flakey middle. 
  11. You can choose to slice it up for serving or pull it apart as soon as it’s out of the oven. While this can turn into a flakey mess, it’s a satisfying topping over steamed rice, salad, vegetables, or even pasta.
