Don’t bother. There are much better recipes for salmon & asparagus out there. The salmon was tasteless. The asparagus was limp & soggy from cooking in a puddle of butter. The lemon & garlic are nice ideas, but there is nothing about this recipe that imparts their flavors to the fish or vegetable - merely sprinkling them over top is not enough. I hate to waste food, but the leftovers are going into the trash. Read More

I thought this was a very tasty recipe and simple. I cooked the salmon in a pan as I used thin asparagus and thought the cooking times of the asparagus and salmon would be very different. One pan might have made sense with thicker asparagus or thinner salmon but not with what I used. Also, I roasted the asparagus in the oven with a drizzle of oil and salt and pepper and added the sauce (butter/lemon mixture) after taking it out of the oven. The butter / lemon sauce kicks this up a notch and makes this really good! Read More
