  • 2 1/2 pound side of salmon, sliced in four pieces (1.2 kg)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Cracked pepper, to taste (optional)
  • 1 (8 ounce) packet cream cheese (250 g)
  • 1 cup milk (full fat or 2%)
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons wholegrain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Freshly chopped chives. to garnish
  • Freshly chopped parsley, to garnish



Step 1

Position a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 375°F | 190°C. Line a baking tray / sheet with a large piece of foil, big enough to fold over and seal to create a packet (or 2 long pieces of foil over lapping each other lengthways to create your salmon packet, depending on the width of you fillet).

Place the salmon onto lined baking tray | sheet. Evenly rub with the garlic; sprinkle with a good amount of salt (about 2 teaspoons) and cracked pepper. Fold the sides of the foil over the salmon to cover and completely seal the packet closed.

Bake until cooked through (about 15-18 minutes). Open the foil, being careful of any escaping steam, and grill / broil under the grill / broiler for 2-3 minutes on medium heat. Garnish with chives, slice each salmon fillet in half to make 8 pieces, and serve immediately with the cream sauce. Serve over mashed potatoes, smashed potatoes, wedges, rice, pasta or steamed veggies.

Cream Sauce:

In a small saucepan, melt the cream cheese and milk over low-medium heat until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended (about 3 minutes). Whisk until smooth; add the honey, mustard, and garlic, and whisk again until the honey has melted through the sauce.
Serve over the salmon.
