Easy Baked Salmon and Veggies
It's pictured here with asparagus but I've also done baby carrots, brussel sprouts, and zucchini. I also change up the seasoning frequently too depending what I'm serving it with. I've listed lemon-pepper below but I also love dill or southwestern spices (like chili powder and garlic salt). If you love a quick and healthy meal this will become a go-to for you!
Baked Salmon and Veggies
2-3 lbs. salmon
1 medium bunch thin asparagus (or sub in your favorite veggie)
1/4 cup butter (sliced thin)
3 T. olive oil
1 T. lemon pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Line a 9x13 pan with a large piece of foil (leave enough on the sides to fold over salmon). Place salmon (skin side down) in the middle of the pan and surround it with veggies.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until thickest part of salmon is opaque and pink. Serve with rice pilaf, calabacitas, mango salsa, mashed potatoes, or enjoy all by itself!
