Baked Salmon and Asparagus in Foil Fast2eat

Baked Salmon and Asparagus in Foil Fast2eat

Salmon is one of my favourite dinners and it couldn’t be easier to make and results in juicy, succulent baked salmon and perfectly cooked asparagus. The foil packet cooking method really helps the salmon absorb all the other flavours in the recipe; it seals in moisture and keeps the flavours intact.

A foolproof recipe, even if you have minimal experience in the kitchen you can easily make this salmon that requires minimal prep and clean!

You can also prep ahead of time, and then just throw in the oven when ready to eat.

For even more flavour, you can also make this same recipe on the grill. This way of preparing salmon is also great for grilling out in the backyard, camping or picnicking. You prepare everything in advance and refrigerate until ready to throw on the grill. Then, just 15 minutes later you have a complete meal, eat straight from the foil and then toss when you’re done, with no dishes to clean.

Flavourful Salmon Fast2eat
Pungent Dijon Mustard is classic pairings for salmon. The Greek yogourt creamy coating helps keep the fish moist. My kids prefer without the sauce, but I love this sauce. It's so flavorful and so yummy on the fish. Enjoy!
