Dinner: Easy One Pan Salmon and Asparagus Recipe

– Hey everyone, it’s Natasha
of NatashasKitchen.com. Today we’re making a one-pan salmon that’s juicy, flaky, easy,
and wildly delicious. The flavored butter is gold. It melts into the salmon as it bakes, giving the salmon and
asparagus amazing flavor. Start by lining a large
rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, making sure the paper isn’t hanging over the edges. Arrange two pounds of salmon
filets down the center. Now on to the asparagus, and we’re using a full two pounds here
because this is dinner. Snap off the fibrous edges and toss them. Then arrange asparagus around your salmon. Drizzle and roll the asparagus with a little bit of olive oil. Now season everything
lightly with salt and pepper. (upbeat music) Now on to that incredible flavored butter. You’ll need 1/2 a cup of softened butter and if you forget to
soften it, no problem. I’ll share a quick method
in the recipe notes. Now add two tablespoons
of fresh lemon juice along with two teaspoons of
finely chopped fresh parsley. Press two large garlic cloves and season with a teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Now, you can use a food processor to whirl this together,
but I just use a fork. It takes a couple minutes,
but it will come together. Seriously though, this flavored butter smells as good as it tastes. It’s popular for good reason. Put 3/4 of the butter
mixture over your salmon and dab the rest of it onto the asparagus. (upbeat music) Spread the butter evenly over
the tops of the salmon filets. You want every bite to
be wildly delicious. Finally, top the salmon
with fresh slices of lemon and bake at 450 degrees
Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes then broil on high heat
for two to three minutes to give the salmon a golden glow. Hooo, I am excited! (laughs) because it’s time for the taste test and it smells so good. Ah, now to pick a slice. The big one. ‘Cause we’re all about
big portions around here. (upbeat music) Oh. And some asparagus, lots of asparagus. Yummy. The taste test, alright, let’s do this ’cause I cannot wait any longer. Ah, and it is so juicy and flakey. (upbeat music) Mm, mm. Wow. The combination of fresh parsley, lemon juice, and garlic
is perfect for salmon. And I love that the flavored butter doesn’t just run off the salmon, it goes deep into the salmon as it bakes and it is just so flavorful. And of course we have to try the asparagus because it is equally amazing with that same herb butter on there. Mmm. Mm. Wow. Mm. Mmmm. Now that’s dinner. Make this once and you’ll
make it again and again. It is such an easy meal idea. It comes together quickly and
it is always a crowd-pleaser. If you enjoyed this video, give me a great big thumbs up below. Make sure to subscribe
