4 oz Sockeye Salmon (skin removed)
2 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Olive oil cooking spray
1 tsp kosher salt (or sea salt flakes)
12 spears of asparagus (woody ends removed)
1 cup butter, softened
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
Prepare the salmon:
Place the Sockeye salmon fillet on a baking dish or sheet lined with parchment paper.
Rub the minced garlic evenly over the salmon.
Sprinkle the chopped parsley on top of the salmon.
Drizzle the freshly squeezed lemon juice over the salmon.
Lightly spray the salmon with olive oil cooking spray.
Sprinkle the kosher salt (or sea salt flakes) evenly over the salmon.
Prepare the asparagus:
Place the asparagus spears on a separate baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus and toss to coat them evenly.
Season with salt and pepper according to taste.
Place both the salmon and asparagus in the preheated oven.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. The asparagus should be tender and lightly browned.
While the salmon and asparagus are baking, prepare the butter:
In a small bowl, mix the softened butter with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Once the salmon and asparagus are cooked, remove them from the oven.
Plate the salmon and asparagus, and serve with a dollop of the seasoned butter on the side.
