Recipe Spotlight

Salmon and Asparagus Baked in Foil
This salmon really couldn’t get any easier and the method of cooking it all together in a foil pouch seals in moisture and keeps the flavors intact.
salmon-and-aspargus-in-foil4-srgb2.1
INGREDIENTS
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 lb asparagus, tough ends trimmed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Fresh dill sprigs, or chopped fresh thyme, rosemary, or parsley
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut four sheets of aluminum foil about 14-inch long.
  3. Divide asparagus into 4 equal portions (about 8 spears per foil packet) and layer in center of each length of foil.
  4. In a small bowl stir together oil with garlic. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the oil over portion of asparagus then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Rinse salmon and allow excess water to run off, then season bottom of each fillet with salt and pepper. Layer fillets over asparagus.
  6. Drizzle top of each salmon fillet with 1 tsp of the olive oil mixture and season top with salt and pepper to taste. Top each with about 2 sprigs dill and 2 lemon slices (if using fresh thyme or rosemary use about 3/4 tsp per each if using parsley use 1 1/2 tsp).
  7. Wrap sides of foil inward over salmon then fold in top and bottom of foil to enclose.
  8. Place foil pouches in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until salmon is cooked through, about 25 – 30 minutes. Unwrap and serve warm.

*Grill alternative: Place packets on grill over medium-low heat. Cover grill; cook 13 to 16 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after about 7 minutes, until salmon flakes easily with fork. To serve, cut large X across top of each packet; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape.
