Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs salmon filet, washed and patted dry (ensure skin is extra dry if you like crispy salmon skin))
  • 1 - 1.5 lb asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • 1 lemon, slice half into rounds and juice the other half
  • Extra Virgin Olive or Avocado Oil
  • Paprika
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Old Bay
  • Sea Salt & Pepper
  • Granulated Garlic
  • Granulated Onion
  • Dill
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees farinheit
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drizzle with oil, about 1 teaspoon
  3. Lay salmon over the drizzled oil
  4. Arrange asparagus alongside the salmon, trying not to overlap any
  5. Drizzle about another 1-2 teaspoons of oil over the salmon and asparagus. I use a paper towel or basting brush to spread the oil out evenly over the salmon and use your hands to give the asparagus an even coating
  6. Sprinkle salmon with dry seasonings, just enough to lightly cover the surface - you can eyeball this and use more or less of any of the seasonings based on your personal preference, or measure ¼-1/2 teaspoon of each into a small bowl and then sprinkle over the top evenly.
  7. Squeeze the juiced lemon over the fish and put a few lemon circles over the fish
  8. Bake for 15 minutes then broil on high for 5 minutes for medium. Salmon should firmly flake at an outer edge but still be tender and barely opaque in the center.
  9. You may have to adjust time for the asparagus if your stalks are larger.
Notes
Optional to use a roasted garlic seasoning blend, and add dried oregano and thyme. May need to adjust baking time if asparagus stalks are larger than a young crop. May need to adjust baking time if you like your salmon more than medium temperature. Bake for 20 and broil for 5 ~
