Garlic Butter Salmon in Foil

Another great recipe from Facebook... from Cafe Delites.  I love my fish on the drier side.... and crusty around the edges.  I baked it according to directions and then cut it in half and broiled it 8 - 10 minutes or until I thought it looked perfect.  I thought it was WAY yummy!



Garlic Butter Salmon in Foil (adapted from Cafe Delites)

1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup honey
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 1/2 lb side of salmon (I bought a fillet from Costco with no skin)
sea salt to taste
cracked pepper to taste
lemon slices to serve
fresh parsley ( i used dried)

Preheat oven to 375.  In a small sauce pan, melt the butter of low-medium heat.  Add the honey, garlic and lemon - whisking until the honey has melted and mixture is heated through. Make a packet with foil - one piece on the bottom with the side curved up.  Lay the salmon on top.  Pour the butter/honey mixture over the salmon slowly so it stays in the bottom piece of foil Sprinkle with a good amount of seal salt, cracked pepper and sprinkle with parsley.  Lay the other piece over the foil and crimp the edges together to completely seal the packet.

Bake until cooked through -a bout 15 - 18 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon and your preference.  Open the foil, being careful of steam.  Broil or grill 2 - 3 minutes to reach desired texture.

 ( I cut our salmon fillet in half and broiled in a separate pan without the juice for 8 - 10 minutes to reach the texture I like)

Garnish with parsley and serve with fresh lemon slices!

Enjoy!
