Ingredients: (serves 4)
– 4 boneless skinelss salmon fillets
– salt and pepper to taste
– 500g asparagus, ends trimmed
– 1 lemon, thinly sliced, (plus additional wedges for garnish)
– ½ cup butter, at room temperature
– 3 teaspoons Italian seasoning
– 3 teaspoons minced garlic
– fresh thyme or parsley, for garnish
Season salmon generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Arrange one salmon fillet and ¼ of the asparagus in the centre of one 30cm x 30cm piece of foil. Repeat with remaining salmon and asparagus on 3 other pieces of foil. Slide lemon slices under the salmon and asparagus.
In a small bowl mix butter, Italian seasoning, and garlic. Drop large dollops of the herb butter on top of the salmon and asparagus.
Fold the foil tightly around the salmon and asparagus, being sure to seal the ends together tightly so the juices and butter doesn’t run out while cooking. Grill over medium high heat for 6-8 minutes on each side, OR bake at 200 degrees for 20 minutes, until asparagus is tender and salmon is flaky.
Drizzle fresh lemon juice over the top and serve immediately.
