Ingredients For the Salmon and Asparagus:

- 2 lbs (2 bunches) asparagus, fibrous ends removed Salt and black pepper
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 small lemon, sliced into rings for garnish
For the Lemon-Garlic-Herb Butter:
- ½ cup (or 8 Tbsp) unsalted butter, softened (*see quick softening note)
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (from 1 small lemon)
- 2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
- 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tsp salt (we used sea salt)
- ¼ tsp black pepper
Place salmon fillets in a row down the center of your lined baking pan.
Arrange trimmed asparagus on the sides of the salmon. Drizzle asparagus lightly with olive oil and roll to coat.
Sprinkle both asparagus and salmon with salt and pepper.
In a bowl take butter and fresh lime juice.
Add finely chopped fresh parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Use a fork to mash together all ingredients for flavored butter. It takes a couple of minutes to come together but keep mashing and it will happen.
Spoon 3/4 of your flavored butter over the salmon and spread evenly.
no need for perfection. Dab remaining butter mixture over the asparagus.
Top each salmon filet with a slice of lemon.
Bake uncovered at 450˚F for 10-12 minutes (a thinner fillet will take 10 minutes and larger fillet takes 12 minutes). Set the oven to BROIL and bake another 2-3 minutes to give the salmon a golden glow. Bake until salmon is flaky and cooked through.
And our salmon is ready, take it out in a serving plate.
**How to Speed-Soften Butter: Place wrapped stick of butter in an airtight Ziploc bag and submerge the bag in warm (100˚F) water, placing a weight over the top so it doesn’t float. Let sit 10 -15 mins until softened.
