INGREDIENTS

HONEY MUSTARD SALMON IN FOIL:

  • 1 batch honey mustard sauce (see below)
  • 2 pound side of salmon, boneless and skinless
  • 1 tablespoon finely-chopped fresh parsley leaves

HONEY MUSTARD SAUCE INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/3 cup whole grain mustard
  • 1/3 cup spicy mustard 
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 fresh lemon juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat oven to broil. Or heat a grill to medium heat.
  2. Prepare your honey mustard sauce as directed below.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with a large sheet of aluminum foil.  Mist the foil with cooking spray, then lay out the salmon in the middle of the foil.
  4. Spoon the honey mustard sauce on top of the salmon, and spread it around evenly so that it covers the top of the salmon.
  5. Broil 10-15 minutes or until fat starts to release from the fish. For a crispier fish leave in until nice and browned, slightly  charred.
  6. To Cook In The Oven: Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until the salmon is almost completely cooked through.  (Cooking times will vary on the thickness of your salmon, so I recommend checking it a few minutes early if you have a thinner cut of salmon.)  Remove the salmon from the oven and carefully open and pull back the aluminum foil so that the top of the fish is completely exposed.  (Be careful, lots of hot steam will be released!)  Change the oven setting to broil, then return the fish to the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes.  (Keep a close eye on the salmon while broiling, though, to be sure that the sauce does not burn.)
  7. To Cook On The Grill: Carefully transfer the packet of salmon to the grill, and grill for 12-14 minutes, or until the salmon is almost completely cooked through.  (Cooking times will vary on the thickness of your salmon, so I recommend checking it a few minutes early if you have a thinner cut of salmon.)  Carefully open and pull back the aluminum foil so that the top of the fish is completely exposed.  (Be careful, lots of hot steam will be released!)  Continue cooking for 3-4 minutes, until the fish is cooked through.
  8. Remove salmon from the oven. Sprinkle the top of the salmon evenly with chive or parsley, and serve immediately.
