Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 25 min
Serves: 3


  • 3 (6-ounce) wild keta salmon pieces
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, sliced lengthwise
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 350°.

Whisk together lemon juice, honey, garlic, and basil, reserving some basil for garnish.

Pat dry salmon and season liberally with salt and pepper. Cover salmon in sauce, being careful to keep the solids on the surface of the fillet.

Place salmon in a baking dish, skin side down, and bake 6-8 minutes.

Turn oven up to broil, and finish salmon under broiler, another 1-3 minutes. The honey garlic sauce should be slightly caramelized and the salmon should flake.

To serve, spoon caramelized honey garlic sauce over fish. Serve garnished with fresh basil. Pair with fresh greens, roasted potatoes, or your favorite side dish.

Nic's pro cooking tip: This recipe is great with coho and sockeye salmon, too!
