  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper (foil preferred). Arrange the salmon on the baking sheet.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the cherry juice and honey. Spread half of the mixture over the salmon fillets, reserving the second half.
