  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 large cloves garlic , crushed
  • 2 limes , juiced
  • 2 1/2 pound (1.2 kg) side of salmon
  • Sea salt , to taste
  • Cracked pepper , to taste (optional)
  • Lime slices (to serve)
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley , divided


  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 375°F | 190°C. Line a baking sheet with a large piece of foil, or 2 long pieces of foil over lapping each other lengthways if your salmon is wide.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low-medium heat. Add the honey, garlic and lime juice, and whisk until the honey has melted through the butter and the mixture is well combined.
  • Place the salmon onto lined baking sheet. Evenly pour the honey-lime mixture over the salmon. Sprinkle with a good amount of salt (about 2 teaspoons), cracked pepper, and 2 tablespoons of parsley. Fold the sides of the foil up beside the salmon to keep the sauce under the fillet.
  • Bake until cooked through (about 15-18 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish and your preference of doneness). Then, change oven setting to broil (or grill) for 2-3 minutes on medium heat to caramelise the top. Garnish with remaining parsley and serve immediately with fresh lime slices.
