Salmon and asparagus are both delicious separately, but together they taste even better. Combine them with a light and zesty lemon oil, and you’ve got a quick and healthy meal option that tastes amazing any time of the day.
Sheet pan meals are always convenient and easy to make. This recipe is no different! Salmon is a light-tasting fish and cooks quickly, meaning you can whip up this fantastic-tasting dish when you’re short for time.
Salmon is an amazing protein option as it’s incredibly rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are responsible for lowering blood pressure, improving skin quality, and decreasing inflammation. Salmon also has many antioxidants and beneficial compounds that can help reduce the risk of heart disease and help with weight control.
As salmon has a delicately oily taste, it tastes best when enhanced with a light and subtle sauce. Overly spiced or rich sauces can often drown out the delicate meat. The mild lemon oil is the perfect accompanying flavor to the salmon and works well with the asparagus. Quite a lot of lemon juice and zest are used in this recipe, but the acidity pairs amazingly well with the fatty salmon.
Asparagus is a vegetable associated with the warmer months as it’s the most vibrant in spring. Apart from tasting fantastic, asparagus is low in calories and high in fiber.
