The hubs can’t get enough of this moist, flaky, and caramelized oven roasted salmon recipe. You won’t be able to either. Wait until you read why.

The key to this oven roasted salmon recipe is the glaze. The hubs loves, loves, loves this 7 ingredient glaze drizzled all over his salmon and then roasted in the oven. The depth of flavor the honey, fresh lemon, garlic, and dairy free butter creates is perfection. It’s also worth noting this recipe calls for the salmon to be broiled for 2-3 minutes to give it that mouthwatering crispy and caramelized taste.

Personally I love this salmon recipe for many reasons. First, it’s another one of my quick and easy go-to recipes…perfect for busy weeknights when you need to feed your starving family in under 30 minutes.

And this is a great dish to serve company. Salmon is an easy meal idea that can be very elegant when needed to up your dinner game for company. You can serve this over a bed of rice with a variety of fresh steamed vegetables. Your guests will love this fresh, flaky and caramelized salmon meal.

Not only is this a delicious meal, it’s also easy.to.clean.up. By wrapping the salmon in a foil packet you’ll cut your clean-up time to just a few minutes. Now that’s a win-win for this mom. #momwin

  • fresh or thawed salmon from your local grocer
  • dairy free butter; I use Earth balance Butter Sticks. These sticks are also soy-free.
  • honey
  • minced garlic
  • fresh lemon juice
  • fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • aluminum foil
  • this pastry brush easily spreads the glaze on the tender salmon
  • remove the salmon when it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit; tap here for a meat thermometer. We use ours all the time.
  • if you like you can skip the broil step; however, it does add extra caramelized flavor to your salmon

Also it goes without saying this recipe was inspired by a similar recipe from Karina at Cafe Delights here. I substituted with dairy free butter and altered the seasonings to our liking. Now it’s a safe meal my family will enjoy.

Ingredients

  • lb salmon, fresh or thawed
  • ¼ c dairy free butter
  • c honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley optional
  • sliced lemon slices for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with a large piece of foil. The foil should be large enough to fold over and seal the salmon. You may need to use 2 pieces of foil depending on the width of your salmon.
  • Place salmon on the prepared baking sheet and set aside.
  • Over medium heat on the stove top melt dairy free butter in a small saucepan. Add the honey, garlic, and lemon.
  • Whisk until the honey has melted and the glaze is well combined.
  • With a pastry brush or spoon drizzle the glaze over the salmon.
  • Sprinkle with salt (about 2 teaspoons) and pepper.
  • Then fold the foil over the salmon and seal so the glaze doesn't leak.
  • Bake 15-18 minutes depending on the thicknesses of your salmon. Remove from the oven and open the foil. Place a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the salmon. The salmon is fully roasted when it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.
  • Set oven to broil and return salmon to the oven for another 2-3 minutes to caramelize the glaze.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
  • Sprinkle chopped parsley over the salmon and garnish with lemon slices.

Notes

For serving smaller salmon filet this recipe can easily be adjusted to accommodate.
