Cilantro Lime Salmon Baked in Foil

1-1 1/2 pound salmon fillet
extra virgin olive oil
salt and black pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

 1. Preheat oven to 400. Lay a sheet of aluminum foil onto a rimmed baking sheet.
 2. Pat the salmon fillet dry and place it onto the center of the foil. Rub the salmon with olive oil to coat, then generously season the salmon with salt and pepper.
 3. To a small bowl, add the garlic, cilantro, honey, and lime juice. Stir to combine. Pour the mixture over the salmon fillet, distributing evenly with your fingers. Fold the edges of the foil up toward the salmon to hold in the juices (pictured), but do not cover the top of the salmon with the foil.
 4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked to medium in the center, being careful not to dry out (cooking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of your fillet). Spoon the pan juices over top of the fillet just prior to serving.
