Baked Salmon in Honey Thyme Sauce

Quick and easy salmon in less than 30 minutes! Serve with rice, rocket salad (rucola) and cherry tomatoes, or only one of the side dishes. If the salmon piece is very big, cook it a bit longer in the pan – 1 min or 1 min and 30 seconds each side. Let’s start!

🕐Prep Time: 10 min 🕐Cook Time: 16 min 🥄Serves: 2


  • 450-500g of salmon

A bit of rocket salad (rucola)


  1. Preheat the oven to 210 C.

  4. On the salmon sprinkle a pinch of salt, pepper and nutmeg. Place it in the oven for 5-6 minutes (depends on salmon’s size).
