One of my many hobbies includes playing the piano. I frequently have the opportunity to play at my church (love it!). The evenings when I go to music rehearsal are a little more rushed, and I like to have dinner ideas that are fast and require minimal cleanup for those kinds of days.
I’m sure many of you can relate. 🙂 Sometimes you just need something simple!
This broiled One-Pan Salmon and Asparagus dinner fits that description. From start to finish, this tasty meal is ready in 15 minutes, and there is very little cleanup afterward.
I made it as a dinner for two, but you can always increase the amount to suit your family’s needs.
One-Pan Salmon and Asparagus Dinner for Two
- 2 bunches asparagus (about 2 lbs)
- 2 salmon fillets
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
Turn oven broiler to high setting and move top rack to position about 8-10 inches below unit.
Line baking sheet with foil and place salmon fillets in center of pan. Sprinkle with minced garlic and squeeze about 1 teaspoon of lemon juice onto each fillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Trim woody ends from asparagus and position around salmon. Salt and pepper asparagus to taste.
Broil for 8-10 minutes or until fish is cooked through.
