I picked up a few salmon fillets at whole foods to try this recipe I found on pinterest. None of that fake GMO fish for me! This recipe is pretty simple and doesn’t dirty a lot of dishes. :-) For me, that’s a plus because I dirty the whole kitchen when I cook!

You’ll need:
4 (6 oz) skinless salmon fillets
1 lb asparagus, tough ends trimmed
2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon thinly sliced
Fresh thyme

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut four sheets of aluminum foil about 14-inch long.

1

First I trim my asparagus and put it in a pan of water with 2 drops lemon essential oil. I always use lemon to clean my fruits and veggies.

2

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut four sheets of aluminum foil about 14-inch long. Divide asparagus into 4 equal portions (about 8 spears per foil packet) and layer in center of each length of foil.

3

In a small bowl stir together oil with garlic. Drizzle 1 tsp of the oil over portion of asparagus then sprinkle with salt and pepper. 

4

Rinse salmon and allow excess water to run off, then season bottom of each fillet with salt and pepper. Layer fillets over asparagus. Drizzle top of each salmon fillet with 1 tsp of the olive oil mixture and season top with salt and pepper to taste.

5

Top each with about 3 sprigs thyme and 2 lemon slices.

Wrap sides of foil inward over salmon then fold in top and bottom of foil to enclose.

Place foil pouches in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until salmon is cooked through, about 25 – 30 minutes.

Unwrap and serve warm. Enjoy!
