Garlic Butter Baked Salmon
  • One pound (500 g) fingerling potatoes, halved (or Yukon golds or halved white/red baby potatoes)
  • Two tablespoons olive oil
  • One and a half teaspoons salt, divided
  • Half teaspoon cracked black pepper, divided
  • Four (6 oz | 170 g) skinless salmon fillets
  • Two and a half tablespoons minced garlic, divided
  • Two tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • One-third cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Half cup melted unsalted butter
  • Three bunches asparagus, (18 spears, woody ends removed)
  • Two tablespoons dry white wine (substitute with 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth)
  • One lemon sliced to garnish
  • Heat oven to 400°F | 200°C. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss together potatoes with the oil, 1/2 tablespoon of garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Spread out in an even layer and roast for 15 minutes until they're just starting to soften and brown.
  • Push potatoes to one side of the sheet pan and arrange salmon down the center.
  • Rub salmon evenly with 1 1/2 tablespoons of minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of parsley.
  • Add the asparagus to the other side of the pan.
  • Combine 1/4 cup of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of the melted butter together and pour the mixture over the salmon and asparagus.
  • Season everything with the remaining salt and pepper.
  • Return to the oven and continue baking until the potatoes are golden and fork-tender and the salmon is opaque throughout, (about 10 minutes). Optional: broil in the last 2 minutes for charred edges.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining butter, garlic, and lemon juice with the wine (or chicken stock).
  • Serve with the salmon, veggies, and lemon slices!
