The Keto Diaries — Baked Salmon and Asparagus

Baked salmon in aluminum foil

Recipe (4 servings) ingredients:

  •  4 salmon filets (skinless)
  • 450g asparagus
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 lemon finely sliced
  • fresh dill
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • salt, pepper

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place 7-8 asparagus in the center of aluminum foil. Drizzle 1 tbs olive oil over the asparagus and season with salt and pepper. Rinse the salmon fillets and season each side with salt and pepper. Layer each fillet over the asparagus and sprinkle the upper side with 1 tbs olive oil mixed with minced garlic. Top with fresh dill and a couple of lemon slices. Wrap each foil side inward over salmon fillets and then fold in top and bottom of foil to enclose. Bake for about 30 minutes, until salmon is cooked. Serve with boiled vegetables and/or mashed potatoes.

Unwrap and enjoy with a cold glass of white wine !

This is by far one of my favorite recipes in existence. I will change up the herbs, the spices, and even the acid — but always some sort of fish and asparagus in aluminum foil baked together. I sometimes like throwing in some diced tomato and capers.

I cooked this for S.O. and myself this weekend, but used Swai (on sale). I used salt and pepper on the fish, lemon over the top with a pat of butter. Bake until fish is done. The asparagus was perfectly cooked. We ate it with cottage cheese and a green salad.
