Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb salmon (about 3 salmon fillets)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1.5 tablespoons lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons thyme fresh, stems removed, chopped (or use 1 tablespoon dried thyme)
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary fresh, stems removed, chopped (or use 1 teaspoon dried rosemary)
  • 1 orange , sliced
  • thyme sprigs optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Pat dry salmon. Brush with 1 tablespoon of olive oil from all sides. Season with salt. Place each salmon fillet on a large piece of foil (separate foil for each salmon fillet).
  3. In a small bowl, combine honey, lime juice, chopped garlic, chopped thyme and chopped rosemary. Mix to combine.
  4. Spread this mixture over the salmon.
  5. Then, top each salmon fillet with an orange slice. Top with thyme sprigs (optional).
  6. Fold all sides of each foil to create loose foil packets (leaving room for air to circulate inside the packet) with salmon fillet inside each packet.
  7. Place foil packets on the rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400 F for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Carefully remove salmon from foil, separating the salmon from the skin which will remain stuck to the foil. Place the salmon onto a serving plate. Carefully scoop the sauce remaining in the foil packet and pour over the salmon.
