This was so tasty, and super easy to prepare. Adding the asparagus to the foil to bake right along with the salmon produced such tender asparagus spears that were cooked to perfection. I really liked this recipe. Thanks, PaulaG. Made for ZWT7, Mischief Makers.

I used Old Bay seasoning on the salmon, and then some sea salt and black pepper on the asparagus. I also subbed a small pat of butter instead of the lemon in the packet, and just used lemon after it cooked. Fabulous!

I thought I hated asparagus, but the trick of snapping the ends off worked! I never had asparagus before, but dh loves it, so I have tried to cook it before, but failed miserably. I didn't know how to prepare it! I will be buying more in the future. Oh, did not change ingredients, but cooked at 350 for 30 mins due to my finicky oven. Salmon was perfect!

I made it the night before and took it on a picnic the next day. Even though I was eating it cold it was delicious and the moistest fish I've ever had.

I have made this several times so far and it comes out perfect each time. I use a season blend to season my salmon and asparagus...I think it is called Old Bay. Anyway, even my 2 year old devoured her plate and she normally refuses vegetables and fish. The asparagus we tender and delicious. Thanks for a keeper! PS. I now cook my chicken in foil...perfect and no mess!

This is a very tasty, easy to make recipe. I added a slice of lemon to the top of the asparagus before closing the packet. That is the only change I made. I will be making this again it would be good made with other vegetables. Thank you Paula, for another yummy recipe.

Try a Tblsp of dijon mustard and a Tblsp of brown sugar on top of the salmon. Then the asparagus with s and p. Roast at same temp and same time...I think it will make you happy

Fantastic recipe. It turned out delicious. It serves very well with rice. It's very simple on the seasoning, but it tastes fantastic. I believe I used salmon steaks that were larger than 5 oz, per steak, so there was a longer cooking time. I would definitely make again. Thank you for sharing.
