Honey Garlic Grilled Salmon

My Honey Garlic Grilled Salmon is one of those dishes you eat where you can’t really carry a conversation because you’re too busy saying, “OMG!” every other bite. It’s that good! Obviously these are pretty casual photos that I took while cooking dinner for myself. I was not expecting to blog it but it was so perfect, I just had to share the recipe with you guys!

I wrote this up for two but this recipe easily doubles. The ratio is 1 Tbsp butter, 1 Tbsp honey, and 1 garlic clove per piece of salmon. I actually used a 4-oz salmon filet so mine was done after just ten minutes but a 6-oz filet will take a few more minutes and of course an 8-oz filet could take up to fifteen minutes. And yes, you could do this salmon foil packet method in an oven.

Honey Garlic Grilled Salmon
2 6-oz salmon filets
Sea salt, pepper
2 Tbsp unsalted butter

2 Tbsp honey
2 garlic cloves

  1. Preheat grill or oven to about 350 degrees. Cut two pieces of aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking oil.
  2. Lay a salmon fillet on each piece of foil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small sauce pan, melt together butter, honey, and garlic until the mixture bubbles and thickens, about 3-5 minutes. Pour sauce over salmon. Securely wrap each foil packet so that the juices don’t run out while cooking.
  4. Toss foil packets on the preheated grill or in the oven and cook for about 10-15 minutes, until salmon can be easily flaked with a fork. Twelve is usually the sweet spot but start checking it after ten. Remove foil packets from the grill and let rest in the packet for a couple of minutes. You can serve it right in the packet if you want to be casual!
