Foil Baked Salmon with Asparagus
Easy dinner recipe that requires very little to prep. Pop it into the oven and do other tasks as this needs none of your attention! Perfect 30 minute meal! Nothing beats the delicious flavor of this Salmon and Asparagus in a Foil Packet Recipe.
Servings 4 people
- 4 Salmon Fillets
- 1 Lemon
- 2 tbsp Butter cut into 8 pats of butter
- 1.5 lbs Asparagus use the tops
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Wash asparagus and cut the spears in half. Place asparagus tops in a large bowl. Save and store the bottom of the spears for other uses like stir fries or soups.
Cut a piece of aluminum foil and place the asparagus to form the bed
Add the salmon fillet. I used wild caught coho salmon that was on sale at Costco, but any variety will work great!
Cut a small amount of stick butter and place on top of the salmon
Slice a lemon and place on the top
Sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and juice from one half of a lemon over the top. Fold the foil packets and close them (seam side up) and place in oven for 20-25 minutes or until asparagus is fork tender and salmon reaches desired temperature.
Mix up the vegetables if asparagus is out of season.
While this recipe is extremely fast as-is, I do like to meal prep the ingredients in the morning before I go to work. Then, when I get home, it is really easy to throw it in the oven and have a delicious and healthy meal.
