  • 1 large salmon filet
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 lemons thinly sliced
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme chopped
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray. 
  • Lay lemon slices in an even layer in the middle of the foil. Season salmon with salt and pepper on both sides. Set filet on lemon slices.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together butter, honey, garlic, oregano, and thyme. Pour over salmon. Fold up the sides of foil, tightly wrapping the salmon
  • Bake until the salmon is cooked, about 12 minutes. Open foil and increase heat to broil. Broil until the butter mixture has thickened and turned into a glaze, about 2 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
