Fresh salmon and roasted asparagus spears…what’s not to love?

 

Lemon-Garlic Salmon & Asparagus Spears


You’ll need:


 (6) 6-oz. salmon fillets, skin removed


 4 bunches of asparagus, woody ends removed


 Olive oil cooking spray


 2 tbsp garlic, minced


 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped


 1 tsp Kosher salt, or sea salt 


 ½ tsp black pepper


 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice


 1 lemon, sliced


 Large baking sheet


 Aluminum foil

 

Instructions:


1. Before turning your oven on, move the oven shelf so it rests approximately 8 inches from the broiler. Once the shelf is in place, turn the broiler on high heat.


 2. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray it with cooking spray.


 3. In a small bowl, thoroughly combine the garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Rub the seasoning mixture on each salmon fillet, evenly coating them. 


 4. Place the salmon fillets on the aluminum-lined baking sheet, and drizzle them with the lemon juice.


5. Arrange the asparagus around the salmon in a single layer, and place the lemon slices over the top of both the asparagus stalks and the salmon fillets.


6. Broil for 8-10 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through.


7. Serve with brown rice, roasted potatoes, or your grain of choice.

Enjoy!
