This is a quick and easy dinner. Pop the packets into the oven while you set the table and in 15-minutes you have a nutritious dish with virtually no clean up. Serve this with a rice or couscous dish and extra lemon on the side. This recipe was found at another web site.

This recipe changed the way I think about cooking fish. It also got me and the bf eating asparagus! I make this at least every other week. It's great exactly as written or you can experiment with different spices/sauces. One of my favorite variations is soya sauce and maple syrup with garlic. I've also used brocolli and/or yellow zuchini when I didn't have asparagus on hand. I usually use the affordable frozen portions of salmon and it always turns out great, you can it even cook it from frozen for a few minutes longer and it turns out the same! Thanks for a keeper!
How could you go wrong? I loved this! I used our fresh asparagus from the garden, and some fresh Copper Salmon (special treat). Wow, what a dish! Who doesn't love foil-packets? Thanks for a simple, quick, extra special meal. Next, time zucchini....Thanks, Paula! xoxoxo Made for ZWT7
EASY,EASY,EASY and tastes great too! Cleanup is a breeze. The only suggestion I can make is to put more spices on the salmon before the asparagus is added.
