Honey Garlic Salmon. This is one of those dishes that once you have made it once you'll want to make it again and again. I think it makes a beautiful dinner party dish or summer buffet and is quite simple enough to do on weeknights if you have some thawed frozen salmon fillets. There is only 20 minutes of cooking time too, so plenty of time to get some vegetables steamed or a salad assembled.
Start by lining a large oven tray with foil, making sure there is enough to encase the salmon in a loose parcel. Grease the foil and add the salmon.
Put the butter, garlic, honey and lemon juice in a bowl and melt in the microwave until just melted. Pour over the salmon and season well.
Seal the foil packet loosely to make sure that no liquid can escape and bake for about 15-20 minutes. If the salmon has not been frozen I like it only just cooked.
Open up the foil carefully and put under the grill for a few minutes until the salmon is golden. Sprinkle over lemon zest and chopped dill and decorate with thinly sliced lemon.
Serve hot with new potatoes and vegetables or cold with salads.
