Ingredients

Honey Mustard Salmon Sauce

  • cup honey (5.3 tbsp)
  • ¼ cup grainy mustard (4 tbsp)
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup butter unsalted, melted (4 tbsp)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Honey Mustard Salmon

  • 3 pound salmon boneless and skinless
  • 1 tablespoon parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray it with a bit of cooking spray.
  • Prepare the honey mustard sauce: Whisk all the honey mustard salmon sauce ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Prepare Salmon: Place the salmon  in the middle of the foil on the prepared baking sheet. Spoon the sauce over the top of the salmon. 
  • Fold the sides of the aluminum foil over the top of the salmon to completely enclose it. 
  • Cook: Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the salmon is almost cooked through. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully pull back the aluminum foil to completely expose the top of the salmon. Transfer the baking sheet back to the oven and broil for about 2 minutes. Keep a close eye on it while broiling, as the salmon could burn quickly.
  • Serve: Remove the salmon from the oven and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.

Notes

Cooking time will vary on the thickness of your salmon. Thicker pieces will take longer to cook than thinner pieces. My salmon was a little over an inch in thickness so it took the entire 20 minutes to cook.
