Easy Dinner: Salmon & Asparagus in Foil


People always ask me how is it that I don't gain weight with all the food I cook and eat.

It's no secret.
I eat dinners like this most nights, and then indulge on weekends w/ wine, cake and pizza.

Even in a restaurant, I mostly order fish of some variety.....and always vegetables.

I love food probably more than anything else, but I am friends with it, if that makes any sense.

You can make this for dinner then have a big piece of cake for dessert!

Here's how:

Start with some good sustainable salmon filets (about 1/2 lb. per person) and some local, in season asparagus.

Cut some sheets of aluminum foil big enough to fold over (3 times the size of the fish).

Trim the woodsy ends of the asparagus spears and lay about 8 stalks in the center of each sheet of foil.

Place a piece of salmon (skin removed) over the asparagus.

Shave 1 garlic clove on a microplane zester into a bowl with 2 tbsp of olive oil.

Pour this mixture over each packet, covering the fish and vegetable.

Season liberally with kosher salt & pepper.

Lay thin slices of lemon over the tops of the fish.

Usually, I would add fresh dill, but did not have any, so chives from my garden will have to do.
You can add in parsley, rosemary, any herb you like.

Fold up the packets tightly and place on a baking sheet. You can do this ahead in the a.m. and keep in the fridge until ready to bake.

Place in a 400F preheated oven, and bake 25-30 minutes.

The fish will steam in the packet and be moist and delicious.

Open the foil package carefully to let the steam out and serve on plates.

I like to squeeze a little more fresh lemon juice over the fish just before serving.


Just in time for bathing suit season.

That was very brilliant oven baked salmon recipe. It all was adored by us. This had been quite simple and also a dish I would result in the firm. The single real reason I could see right now that this burning off is cooking it too high in warmth. Judge your cooker men and women. When it hamburgers sexy, do not cook it on medium. Mine cooks quite inexpensively, therefore I simply switched down it. I'd lots of quite a yummy curry that fell down along with caramelized attractively. The oven baked salmon was moist, also the flavour and also flaky has been so amazing. I served it over rice with stir-fried snow peas, peas and carrots cooked using a little minced garlic, only just a tiny soy sauce, peanut oil, and a small bit of peppermint oil as well as also a spoonful of toasted sesame oil. What a meal! In the event you would like to find out for a lot much additional oven baked salmon bites, Steak or oven baked salmon using caramelized then you definitely may go to this website too I have lots of fantastic hints in creating poultry bites.
