  • 2 pounds side of wild-caught salmon fillet, boneless and skinless
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional garnish: chopped fresh parsley


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the salmon fillet in the middle of the foil-lined sheet.
  • Use a basting brush to coat the salmon with the honey mustard mixture. Set aside and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
  • While the fish is marinating, preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
  • Serve warm, topped with parsley if using.


  1. Baking times will vary depending on the thickness of your salmon filet, so I recommend checking it a few minutes early if you have a thinner cut of salmon.
  2. I highly recommend using sustainably-harvested, wild-caught Alaskan salmon from ButcherBox for this recipe.
  3. This recipe is best enjoyed the day that it is made, as salmon can dry out when reheated. Store leftover salmon in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days.
