  • 2 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 sprigs thyme (leaves removed)
  • 2 salmon fillets (about 4-5 ounces (110-150g) each)
  • oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 390F / 200c.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the chopped garlic, honey, mustard and thyme sprigs.
  • With your hands, rub a little oil all over the salmon fillets, season both sides with salt and pepper and place in an oven proof skillet or on a baking sheet.
  • Brush the honey mustard glaze on both sides of the salmon.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes (depending on the thickness of your fillets) until cooked through.


  • Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your salmon fillet.
  • I cooked the salmon in an oven proof skillet, but you can use a baking sheet lined with foil if you prefer.
  • Oil the salmon fillets all over as this will help to protect them from the heat.
