This spicy honey salmon recipe is a perfect example of winter cooking.
This time of year, I am all about using oven to do most of the cooking.
First of all, oven heats up the kitchen so you can save on the heater bill.
Secondly, oven cuts down active cooking time significantly so you can spend time in the living room instead of the kitchen.
Foil baking is my top choice when it comes to oven cooking.
The reasons are simple: I don’t have to wash dishes, plus foil baking makes everything tastes better as it retains the original flavors of the ingredients.
As you can see, the salmon is juicy, moist and flaked nicely. The spicy honey marinate doesn’t get burned during the baking process.
The flavors are sealed inside the foil packet so you get the best of the marinade as well as the natural taste of the salmon.
The active time of this spicy honey salmon in foil recipe is 10 minutes. So easy and quick!

Add the spicy honey sauce to the salmon, spread and coat the surface evenly. Fold and wrap the foil tightly and bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes (depending on the thickness of your salmon). Unwrap the salmon, garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
I used Maille Old Style Grained Dijon Mustard in a jar. If you don't have it, you can just use regular dijon mustard (without seeds).
