DELICIOUS and FAST Salmon & Asparagus foil packets!…

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 salmon fillets, skin on or off
  • 1 pound organic asparagus spears, ends trimmed off and discarded
  • 1/3 cup pasture-raised or cultured butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup fresh organic lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic, (or 4 large cloves garlic, minced)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, finely chopped (or dried parsley)
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • 2/3 cup fresh grated manchego (12-month aged) or parmesan cheese

    INSTRUCTIONS

      • Preheat oven or barbecue (grill) following instructions below.
      • Place each salmon fillet in the center of one 12×18-inch heavy-duty aluminum foil piece. Divide the asparagus into 4 equal portions and arrange next to the salmon on each foil piece.
      • In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, lemon juice, garlic, and parsley. Pour the garlic/butter mixture evenly over each piece of salmon and asparagus; season with salt and pepper to taste, and top each pack with the cheese (about 3 tablespoons per pack).
    • Tent with foil, tightly sealing the edges to prevent the butter from being leaked, to create a foil packet.

    For The Oven:

    • Bake in preheated oven to 200°C | 400°F for 15 minutes, or until cooked to desired doneness. For a crispy top, broil for 1-2 minutes extra until Cheese is golden.

    For The Grill:

    • Grill, covered on medium-high heat for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked to desired doneness.

      OPTIONAL: For a crispy top, broil for 1-2 minutes extra until Cheese is golden.
    • Serve with fresh lemon wedges and garnish with extra parsley.
    • This is such a quick to make and flavorful recipe. Pairs well with some cauliflower rice.
