Honey Garlic Salmon Baked in Foil

Honey Garlic Salmon Baked in Foil


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each), skin-on or skinless
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Chopped fresh herbs (parsley, dill, or cilantro) for garnish
  • Optional: Sliced lemon for serving


  1. Preparation:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Place each salmon fillet on a piece of foil large enough to fold and seal around the fish.
  2. Mixing the Sauce:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together the minced garlic, honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  3. Coating the Salmon:
    • Spoon the honey garlic mixture evenly over each salmon fillet, ensuring they are well coated.
  4. Wrapping in Foil:
    • Fold and seal the edges of the foil to create a packet for each salmon fillet, ensuring it’s tightly sealed to trap the flavors.
  5. Baking:
    • Place the foil packets on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. The salmon should be flaky and easily pierced with a fork when done.
  6. Garnish and Serve:
    • Carefully open the foil packets (watch out for steam) and transfer the salmon to serving plates.
    • Sprinkle with chopped fresh herbs for garnish if desired.
    • Serve with sliced lemon for an extra citrus touch.
