One-Pan Salmon Asparagus Recipe

Eating asparagus comes with many benefits. It is rich in vitamins A, C, and K, it’s low in calories, helps with digestion, lowers blood pressure, and is beneficial for pregnant women. And the best way to cook it is with any type of fish. Such a combination is a delicious light healthy meal that makes you feel quite full once you finish your plate.

Before you start doing anything, make sure you have in your kitchen these ingredients: 2 lb salmon filet, 2 lbs of 2 bunches of asparagus, olive oil, salt, and black pepper, and a lemon. To make your dish juicy, prepare a lemon-garlic-herb butter which would need 85 grams of unsalted butter, 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 2 pressed garlic cloves, 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley, 1 tbsp salt, and ¼ tbsp black pepper.

Be picky when you buy the ingredients, the fish must be fresh. Surf the internet to find the best offers on grocery stores such as Walmart, Tesco, Morrison, or Lidl. There’s fresh salmon on the way or even trout fillets at a discount along with the limes which are a perfect combo for this recipe Lidl offers. Compared to other brands, Lidl offers discounts on salmon almost every week. Despite the fact that the fish is always fresh, seafood is MSC certified; just as their mantra says: From Pole to Plate. So mark our words and be aware that it is of great help to know where to do the shopping safely, so go give it a shot, especially in the weekly and summer deals.

How to make it?

In the middle of your baking pan place the salmon fillets in a row. Put the asparagus on the sides, sprinkle it with olive oil, and roll it. As a final touch, sprinkle the whole pan with salt and black pepper.

Having done that, your flavor butter should be mashed in a bowl with all the ingredients mixed in it. It will take you some minutes to make it a homogeneous mass.

Once you’re ready with the butter, spread it on top of the salmon fillets and drizzle a bit of it on asparagus. Put slices of lemon on top of the fillets and put them in the oven (450°F for 10-12 minutes). Lastly, put your oven in Broil for 2-3 minutes to make it red/pink.
