Lemon-Honey Salmon

So 2019 is over and done with and here we are at the start of 2020 – not going to lie, I have spent most of the first day of the year on the sofa watching films and feeling like I could sleep for the next 12 months. But, my brain has also been ticking over everything I want to achieve this year. I’m not setting resolutions as I know I won’t stick to those, but I am setting some realistic goals.

I head back to Italy in a couple weeks where I will be putting 110% focus onto this blog, my recipes and my food photography as I want this to grow into a business over the coming months. What kind of business I will keep under wraps for the time being, but if all goes to plan, then well..you guys will be the first to know!

Until then, I asked a question on Instagram a couple weeks ago, about what it is that people want to see here in 2020. One answer was more fish recipes and so…recipe number 1 of 2020 is served! This is one of my favourite salmon recipes and I make it time and time again. It works great as a meal prep and will keep for a couple days in an air-tight container and can be enjoyed hot or cold. I usually have mine with a salad or broccoli.

So give this a go, take a picture, post it on Instagram and tag my page @thefatfilesuk so I can see what you guys are getting up to! Feel free to leave a comment too as I love feedback!

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook time: 17 minutes Total time: 27 minutes

Serves: 2


2 Salmon fillets 2 Lemon Slices

Marinade 2 Tbsp Olive oil 1 Tsp Vinegar 2 Tbsp Honey Juice of 1 Lemon Small handful fresh parsley 1 Garlic clove, crushed 1/2 Tsp Salt 1/4 Tsp Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 170℃ Fan and line a baking tray with a large piece of foil – it needs to be big enough that you can loosely close it up.

  2. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the marinade and stir well to combine. Place the squeezed out lemons onto the foil.

  3. Place the salmon fillets onto the foil skin-side down and pour over the marinade. Place a lemon slice on top of each fillet.

  5. Serve with salad, rice or any greens you fancy.
