Lemon Garlic Salmon with Asparagus Parchment Packet!

Weeknight staples in my house tend to be quick dishes, and I always try to make them as scrumptious and nutritious for my family as I can!

I changed my eating habits this time of year from the heavy, sumptuous meals from the holidays to lighter meals that everyone enjoys since it is the time of year when we focus on our health and happiness for ourselves and our family.

Consider the recipe for Lemon Garlic Salmon and Asparagus in a Parchment Packet. This supper is ready for my family to eat with only five ingredients and 15 minutes of prep time. And they undoubtedly enjoy themselves!

The usage of the parchment packet is one of the secrets to this wonderful salmon dish.

I am certain that my salmon and asparagus will cook to perfection in such a short period of time thanks to the thick, durable parchment.

Additionally, because the recipe calls for lemon, I am aware that I shouldn’t use foil with it because the acid from the lemon can react with the foil and provide a metallic flavor to the salmon.

As a result, I just cut a piece of Reynolds parchment paper to fit my baking sheet, then place cleaned asparagus stalks in the middle. After that, I add my house seasoning and a little very nice olive oil to the salmon filet before placing it on top of the asparagus.

Then, I bring both of the parchment’s ends toward the center, fold and crimp them down, and tuck them beneath the salmon and asparagus. I accomplish this with my parchment paper by folding it on both sides in the direction of the salmon and asparagus.

The traditional method of creating a parchment package, which entails cutting the parchment into a heart-shaped piece and crimping the edges end over end to close the packet, seems considerably slower and more difficult to me.

After that, arrange them on the sheet pan and bake an 8 to 9 ounce salmon filet for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Depending on the size of your fish, you will need to alter the cooking time.

This quick and simple meal comes together in a flash and is prepared and on the table in 15 minutes! Lemon Garlic Salmon with Asparagus Parchment Packet!
Ingredients

▢2 (8-9 ounce) boneless salmon filets
▢20 asparagus spears ends trimmed
▢2 tablespoons olive oil
▢1 teaspoon Stone House Seasoning
▢6 slices lemon

Instructions
Set the oven to 400oF.
Two baking sheet-sized parchment paper pieces should be cut out. Place one salmon filet on top of the asparagus stalks in the center of the parchment paper, followed by half the asparagus spears.
One tablespoon of olive oil and a half teaspoon of Stone House Seasoning should be drizzled over the fish. Place three lemon slices on the fish.

Fold the parchment paper’s edges in the direction of the fish. Pulling in the direction of the salmon’s center, gather the parchment paper’s ends. Wrap the parchment paper around the salmon to secure it after folding it down once.

Continue by using the second filet.

15 minutes of baking time in the oven. From the oven, remove. When salmon flakes readily with a fork, it is cooked.
