  • 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 through, about 15 minutes to 20 minutes. Open foil and increase heat to broil.
  • Broil until the butter mixture has thickened and turned into a glaze, about 2 minutes, and internal temperature reads 145 degrees on a digital thermometer. Garnish with parsley and serve.



  1. Salmon: A salmon filet is half a salmon (also known as a side of salmon). A large filet is around 1 to 2 pounds. Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the filet. Thicker filets (2 inches and over) may take about 20 minutes. 
  2. Yield: This recipe makes at least 4 generous servings (the exact serving size depends on the piece of salmon you purchase).
  3. Storage: Store leftover cooked salmon covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
