  • tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ¾ tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil, plus more
  • ½ tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (roughly chopped)
  • 1 pound salmon with skin
  • salt
  • ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
  • In a small bowl, whisk together honey, garlic, olive oil, white wine vinegar, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust.
  • Prepare a piece aluminum foil that is large enough to be folded over and seal. Brush a thin layer of olive oil on the foil. Place the salmon skin-side down on the foil. Season with salt and pepper. Fold up all 4 sides of the foil around the salmon to create a well. Pour the honey mixture all over the salmon. Fold the foil carefully and seal the packets completely. Transfer the salmon packet to a baking sheet. Bake in the oven until cook through, about 15 – 20 minutes. Serve immediately.


  1. I used a ¾-inch-thick salmon, it took about 17 minutes to cook.
  2. The salmon skin may stick a bit to the foil. Try your best to get the skin out. It tasted delicious!
