Complicated recipe FOILED! Salmon and Asparagus recipe for the BUSY COOK

Salmon & Asparagus

Recipe for the BUSY COOK

Need any easy meal on a weeknight or something to work in your meal plan for the week?  I love prepping easy basic meals with parchment or aluminum foil.  I chose to use aluminum foil on this recipe because I could cook the salmon all without any extra pans and clean up.

Make one aluminum pouch per person.  I use the following:

  • Salmon fillet (skinned and devained, if not skinned them you can easily remove the skin after cooking)
  • Asparagus, trimmed
  • Himalayan Salt (I like this for the subtle flavor) or you can use regular sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil
  1. Cut a piece of foil so you can wrap the salmon up.
  2. Place salmon on foil first, add salt and pepper, add asparagus and then more salt and pepper if you choose. Finally place a drizzle of olive oil, wrap up to make a small tent.
  3. Place in oven at 350 degrees for 12 to 16 minutes, until salmon is flakey and asparagus is tender.
  4. Let rest before opening up all pouches.
  5. Serve with a green salad, rice, potato, or on its own.


In place of salt and pepper use lemon pepper, Cajun, creole, or dry rub BBQ seasoning.  Make up on a weekend for the whole week and vary the salmon with different seasonings.
