Mix the honey, lemon juice, Whiskey, thyme, lemon zest, Irish butter, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
Pour over salmon in a zip lock bag, and remove all the air, seal, and refrigerate for 4 hours.
Remove the salmon from the marinade and place it on a rack in a roasting tray.
Preheat oven for 230°C (450 °F).
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, basting once with the marinade, or until golden and white juices begin to appear.
