There is a combination of honey, garlic, and spicy mustard that flavors these fresh salmon fillets. The salmon is an easy preparation and provides a healthy meal. The salmon takes just minutes to fix and bake. 


  • 2 pounds salmon fillets, about 6 to 8 ounces each
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard or a Creole mustard
  • 1 medium clove garlic, very finely minced
  • Dash dried leaf basil
  • Dash sea salt
  • Dash freshly ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 400 F. Line a shallow baking dish with foil and grease lightly with olive oil.

  2. Combine honey, mustard, minced garlic, basil, and salt and pepper in a food storage bag or a glass or plastic container. Add the salmon fillets and seal or cover; refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

  3. Remove salmon from the marinade and brush lightly with olive oil.

  4. Bake the salmon fillets in the prepared pan, skin-side down, for 14 to 15 minutes, or until fish is cooked through.
