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.

This was fabulous- a keeper for us. I put a little Old Bay Seasoning on top of the salmon and drizzled with olive oil. Otherwise, followed the instructions exactly.

This was so awesome. I sprinkled garlic power and onion powder along with salt and pepper on top. I'll be making this again.

I followed the recipe exactly but just felt underwhelmed by the dish. On the plus side, it is certainly a fast easy way to simultaneously cook salmon and asparagus. Taste-wise it's a little bland. Also, the asparagus gets stuck to the salmon which hampers the presentation somewhat. I'd make it again in a pinch if I was very short on time and wanted a healthy meal in a jiffy.

We loved this! We make salmon a lot, usually with teriyaki and maple on the grill. This is now in the rotation! Making for the second time right now. The first time I had pretty thick asparagus, and it didn't quite cook enough; this time I'm using thin, white asparagus. I can't wait to try this out with different veggies and flavors - tonight I sprinkled on some sweet ginger Asian seasoning at the request of my hubby. Thanks for such a great, easy recipe, with minimal work and miniscule clean up!

This is a new favorite. A perfect, delicious recipe with a nice presentation
(I went old school and used parchment paper)
