Roasted Salmon and Asparagus Foil Packets
Tonight I was looking for a healthy quick hitter. Love me some fresh salmon. Something about the orange color makes me feel like I am eating a super food and by all accounts it possibly is. Given we are now in full blown summer the vegetables are colorful and bountiful. I zipped into Whole Foods for some nice cuts of salmon and strolled through the vegetable section and couldn’t help grab a couple of bunches of asparagus that were standing beautifully in a small tray of water. Strong, crispy and green as Ireland. Done.. dinner was set.

I planned on grilling it but ran out of gas so I had to go with the oven. As I mentioned before when cooking salmon go 300 to 350 and cook it a little longer than scorching it which depletes it of those healthy fats. Foil on the bottom, minced garlic, salt and pepper with a squeeze of lemon and some Tajin Seasoning for some chili flavor minus the heat. I love heat but wanted to lighten up the seasoning to let the salmon shine on its own. This would be a super easy and healthy dinner for camping.

Salmon Filet (fresh)
1 minced garlic
1 lemon
Tajin seasoning
Kosher Salt and Black Pepper
Olive Oil

1. Preheat your oven to 300-350 degrees. On a sheet of foil lay your trimmed asparagus down and top with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Lay your salmon on top of the asparagus and squeeze half a lemon on it. Top with seasoning and finally lay a lemon slice on top. Carefully fold your foil until the it is sealed and leak proof.
Roast in your oven for about 20 minutes. I had some brown rice left over so served mine on top of it.
