  • 4 Fillets sockeye salmon fillets skin-on, patted dry with paper towels
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil divided
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 Tsp fresh chopped thyme leaves
  • Cup lemon juice
  • 450 Gram asparagus, woody ends trimmed off
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • lemon slices for garnish


  • Prep: Preheat oven to 200˚F.Brush a rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Rub: Place the salmon fillets skin-side-down on the baking sheet and rub each fillet with the remaining olive oil. Rub the salmon fillets evenly with garlic, parsley, and thyme. Pour the lemon juice over the fillets.
  • Add Asparagus: Arrange the asparagus around the fillets in a single layer. Toss around to coat with the olive oil.
  • Season: Season the salmon and the asparagus with salt and fresh ground black pepper.
  • Roast: Roast for 10 to 11 minutes.
  • Serve: Garnish with lemon slices and serve with the asparagus.


– Don’t forget to pat your salmon dry with a paper towel before you rub them with the herbs and garlic.
– Salmon does not need heavy seasoning or sauces. It is perfect with just a simple rub of fresh herbs and lemon juice.
– Do not cook your salmon skin side up. Make sure the skin is down.
– To get a little browning on top, set your broiler to high in the last couple minutes of cooking and broil the salmon until browned on top.
