Buttered Honey Garlic Salmon

Postby Bushman » Wed Oct 26, 2016 5:03 pm

Here is my dinner tonight:

Ingredients
¼ cup butter
⅓ cup honey
4 large cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (juice of ½ a lemon)
1.2kg | 2½ pound side of salmon
Sea salt, to taste
Cracked pepper, to taste (optional)
Lemon slices (to serve)
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

Instructions
Position a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 375°F | 190°C. Line a baking tray / sheet with a large piece of foil, big enough to fold over and seal to create a packet (or 2 long pieces of foil over lapping each other lengthways to create your salmon packet, depending on the width of you fillet).
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low-medium heat. Add the honey, garlic and lemon, and whisk until the honey has melted through the butter and the mixture is well combined.
Place the salmon onto lined baking tray | sheet. Pour the butter/honey mixture over the salmon, and using a pastry brush or spoon, spread evenly over the salmon. Sprinkle with a good amount of salt (about 2 teaspoons) and cracked pepper. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon to cover and completely seal the packet closed so the butter does not leak.
Bake until cooked through (about 15-18 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish and your preference of doneness). Open the foil, being careful of any escaping steam, and grill / broil under the grill / broiler for 2-3 minutes on medium heat to caramelise the top. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately with lemon slices.

Just finished, great as the fish was very tender.

It was delicious took it out of the oven at 145 degree temp which is perfect for fish. Spooning the drippings back on top of the fish really added to the flavor.

PS: My wife loves our fish dinners because I catch, clean, and cook the dinner.

Bushman,
My next door neighbor came back from the fishing camp he was working in up in Alaska this summer, and he gifted me about a dozen nice 3 to 5 lb. flash frozen salmon filets from the couple of coolers he brought back on the plane with him. I just copied your honey garlic recipe and will be trying it very soon. (Not tonight, since I also had a chunk of salmon for supper last night too, but it wasn't with this recipe.) Looks good though, and it will happen very soon. :thumbup:
