2tbsp butter cut into 8 pats of butter
1.5 lbs asparagus use the tops

Wash asparagus and cut the spears in half. Place asparagus tops in a large bowl. Save and store bottom 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, 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 lemon juice 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.
