What's for Dinner: Salmon Asparagus Foil Packets

Since the sausage potato foil packet dinner was such a hit with the family, I thought I'd try this salmon asperagus foil packet recipe. Unfortunately, my family has never tried salmon or they just hate fish. Oh well, my cat loved the left overs. Can't win them all, right? 


4 boneless skinless salmon fillets 
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 lb of asparagus, end trimmed
1 lemon, sliced thin
1/2 cup butter, room temperature 
3 teaspoons Italian seasoning 
3 teaspoons garlic 
Fresh parsley for garnish 


Preheat oven to 400F. Salt and pepper both sides of the filets. Trim the end of the asparagus. Slice the lemon. On a 12x12 piece of foil place the salmon and the asparagus. I put a slice of lemon under the salmon and the asparagus and another slice on top with a dollop of the butter mixture. Seal the foil packets tightly. I have found that placing a baking sheet on the bottom rack of the oven will catch any leaks from the packets. Place the packets in the oven for 20 minutes. Open packets and garnish with fresh parsley and serve. Yum Yum
