The preparation time for this fast-baked salmon entrée is only 10 minutes, including the time spent in the oven. Baking with foil-wrapped goods eliminates the need for extra cleanup.
BAKED SALMON IN FOIL
Cooking salmon in foil is a cinch. Thanks to this recipe, Baked salmon comes out moist, juicy, tender, and overflowing with flavor.
In addition, I appreciate the fact that the oven handles all the work, resulting in a bit of amount of hands-on time. Furthermore, you won’t have to wash a baking sheet or dish afterward.
HONEY GARLIC BUTTER SAUCE
My honey garlic butter recipe was featured in my previous post. To demonstrate how to create this honey garlic butter salmon in foil, I’m going to show you exactly how to do it.
The preparation time is only ten minutes, including the preparation of the honey garlic butter sauce and the wrapping of the salmon in aluminum foil.
Pat dry the salmon with paper towels before baking it in foil for the best results. After baking, you don’t want the salmon to be covered with a runny sauce. Half of the honey garlic butter is what I usually put in the aluminum foil when making this recipe.
Unwrapping the foil and scooping out some of the fishy water that had leaked from the salmon would be my preferred method of removing it from the oven. I’m not a fan of the fishy flavor, and the sauce was diluted.
Serve the cooked salmon with the leftover honey garlic butter and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice on top. I guarantee you’ll never eat salmon quite like this again.

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (207 degrees Celsius).
- For around 10-15 seconds, microwave a small cup of butter. Add honey, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper if using, and chopped parsley.
- Lay down two sheets of aluminum foil. They must be big enough to cover and envelop the fish. Then add the salmon, which you should season on both sides with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add half of the Honey Garlic Butter to the fish and cook it. Be sure to cover the entire surface area. Make sure there is no leakage by securing the foil tightly.
- Set the timer for 15 minutes in the oven. Remove the foil from the salmon and drain any remaining liquid. It is best to serve shortly after cooking with the remaining Honey Garlic Butter on top of the fish.
