  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil with about 4 inches of overhang off the sides. (you may need two sheets of foil to do this) Fold up the edges to create a pocket.

  • Place the salmon in the center of the lined baking sheet.

  • To a small bowl add, mustard, honey, smoked paprika, basil, red pepper flakes and minced garlic. Whisk until smooth.

  • Pour the mixture over the salmon. Gently rub the mixture into the salmon so it is completely coated. Season the top of the salmon with salt and pepper.
