Total: 20 minutes

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey mustard, garlic, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, dill, and salt.

  3. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Brush the salmon fillets on both sides with olive oil.

  4. Place the fillets skin-side down (if the fillets have the skin on) on the foil-lined pan.

  5. Use a basting brush to coat the top side of the fillets with the honey mustard mixture.

  6. Place in the oven and bake at 400 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes, until just barely cooked through (please don’t overcook the salmon).

  7. It’s okay if the salmon is still a little rare in the center.
