Sheet Pan Lemon Garlic Salmon and Asparagus is a light, delicious, and easy dish bursting with flavor! Healthy and great for a family.
I LOVE salmon. And asparagus.
I also love simple, easy meals that taste decadent and rich, but are incredibly healthy – because I won’t lie, eating well isn’t always easy for me.
If I could, I’d live off fried food, cookie dough, and wine – but as I get older (and fatter), and deal with more and more health issues, we’ve been trying to add a lot more fish and vegetables in our diets.
Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE seafood and vegetables – but for being a food blogger, I am also the world’s WORST dinner planner. Sometimes its just all too easy to turn to a quick and not really healthy meal after a long day of work!
This meal is so simple, there is no excuse NOT to make it.
Plus, it’s a great way to add in a lot of color and flavor into lent, and beyond! This meal is so simple and delicious, it is a big hit for our family.
Even my picky eater will go for this salmon – and it doesn’t give ANY fishy taste or smell (we have some picky noses in our house, too – but this method doesn’t give any fishy smells!).
This would also be a perfect dinner party recipe for an effortlessly elegant meal. I hope you love it as much as we do!
Sheet Pan Lemon Garlic Salmon and Asparagus
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add salmon and asparagus to sheetpan, spreading out so nothing is too crowded.
In a small bowl, combine oil, lemon juice, and garlic and mix well.
Drizzle oil, lemon juice, and garlic mixture over salmon and asparagus.
Layer lemon on top.
Season well with salt and pepper.
Bake 15-20 minutes, until salmon is opaque and asparagus is soft.
Serve immediately, either on its own, or alongside roasted potatoes, rice, or a nice salad.
