Baked Salmon Shrimp and Asparagus

Easy recipe for Baked Salmon Shrimp and Asparagus. This quick, under 30-minute one-pan meal, is so easy to make and will become a favorite in your home. Salmon and shrimp in juices of lemon and butter.

Baked Salmon Shrimp and Asparagus


Oven Baked Salmon fillets with shrimp and asparagus baked as a one-pan dish. Fewer dishes to wash and you feel like you’re eating in a fancy restaurant (minus the expensive bill).

Seasoning the salmon: Though salt and pepper are enough of a seasoning when baking salmon, I love the added flavors the paprika and garlic give the dish.


Adding asparagus to the shrimp and salmon completes the meal and you don’t need to prepare a side salad since you already have a vegetable. All you need to serve this easy meal is a side dish of mashed potatoes, or baked potato or a side of rice.

Salmon is a wonderful protein to cook with, it has beneficial protein,Β healthy omega-3 fatty acids,Β and vitamins one needs. When selecting salmon, be sure to use good quality salmon and shrimp. Don’t use farm-raised salmon or shrimp.

Shrimp and asparagus in a butter. Topped with lemon


Cooking salmon in the oven is a great idea! It’s easy to do and there is not much that can go wrong during baking. All you need is a baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup and you got yourself a quick and easy dinner!

Check the readiness of the salmon with a fork. When the salmon flakes easily with a fork, it’s ready. You don’t want to overbake the salmon, it will dry out and not be as flavorful.

Be sure the butter is over the salmon. Once the butter melts, it will penetrate into the salmon and add juiciness. Melted butter brings juice and tenderness to the salmon.

    Can you use parchment paper underneath? Last time the salmon stuck to the pan.

    • Valentina's Corner 01/03/2019, 1:58 pm  ξ˜‰

      Parchment paper will be great, Audra. Enjoy!

    Deliciously amazing. I never cooked salmon before nor do I eat it. Now I want more. Thanks for sharing.

    • admin 05/11/2018, 2:48 pm  ξ˜‰

      Thanks so much, C! Glad you tried baked salmon. It sure is addictive and so easy to make!

  • Kristi 02/10/2018, 12:14 pm  ξ˜‰

    Could I substitute the butter with olive oil? Or is something else I could substitute the butter with?

    • admin 02/11/2018, 9:06 pm  ξ˜‰

      This recipe really needs that butter. If you are looking for something without butter, try THIS Salmon and Avocado Salsa

  • Asia 01/14/2018, 11:06 pm  ξ˜‰

    Do you bake your salmon with the skin on or off?

    • admin 01/15/2018, 12:16 am  ξ˜‰

      Without skin. Thank you, Asia.

    • Holly 03/26/2018, 12:35 am  ξ˜‰

      I did mine with the skin on one side…came out great live this one so does my husband….but cooking it with half side skinned won’t hurt it and it sides of the skin after cooked…I grew up having seafood all the time we went fished for our own and my dad also always did with skin on one side and that’s the side that lays on the pan

      • admin 03/28/2018, 12:42 am 

        Thanks so much for sharing your tips, Holly. Always love to hear your responses and tips you’ve tried and that worked :)!

  • Ashley 01/14/2018, 12:37 pm  ξ˜‰

    Oh my this was yummy. Not the cheapest meal of the week for sure, but sooo good! I was nervous my husband wouldn’t love it because he isn’t a huge fan of ‘sour’ and the lemon is strong. But everyone, including my young kids, LOVED this dinner!

    • admin 01/15/2018, 12:09 am  ξ˜‰

      Awww, thanks for sharing, Ashley. So glad your family enjoyed the recipe. ?

  • Cheryl 01/12/2018, 7:14 pm  ξ˜‰

    Hi, thanks for sharing your recipe, may I find out whether you used salted or unsalted butter? Thanks!

    • admin 01/15/2018, 12:08 am  ξ˜‰

      Hi there. Unsalted butter. Thank you. ?

  • Kim 09/24/2017, 9:00 pm  ξ˜‰

    This was a really delicious dish. I made Jasmine rice along with it and it was great. I will be eating this dish in a regular basis.

    • admin 09/26/2017, 3:28 pm  ξ˜‰

      I’m so glad to hear that, Kim. Jasmine rice sounds wonderful, yummm.. =)

  • Teresa 08/01/2017, 10:21 pm  ξ˜‰

    I could eat salmon cooked this way every night and I’m not a huge salmon fan unless it’s cooked right with the right seasonings. This is delicious!

    • admin 08/02/2017, 12:12 am  ξ˜‰

      Ha! You’re so sweet. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed this salmon. It truly is just.., well right. πŸ™‚ Thank you for visiting and trying our recipe. πŸ™‚

  • Lanna 07/16/2017, 10:41 pm  ξ˜‰

    So incredibly easy and delicious! I’m ditching pan frying my salmons for a while! Lol. Everything is so flavorful with just these few simple ingredients. Trust me when I daybreak goes a longs a long way! For those who are wondering in ingredients about the garlic, it’s garlic powder. For 3/4 teaspoon salt, it is converted to 1/2 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon. Enjoy!!!!

    • admin 07/17/2017, 5:39 pm  ξ˜‰

      That’s so awesome to hear! Yes, baking salmon is so easy and delicious. ☺ Thanks for visiting our online home..

  • Chelsea 07/05/2017, 9:36 am  ξ˜‰

    Do you think this could be done with coconut oil instead of butter? attempting paleo but this recipe looks wonderful!!

    • admin 07/06/2017, 12:15 am  ξ˜‰

      Hi Chelsea,
      Have never tried it with coconut oil, therefore, am I’m unsure of the difference it will make. If you try it, I’d love to hear feedback☺.

  • Sue Anne 05/20/2017, 4:39 pm  ξ˜‰

    Do you know how much longer to cook if things are frozen? (never have time to run to the grocery store)

    • admin 05/22/2017, 9:16 am  ξ˜‰

      Sue Anne, hi there. I understand, most of ours is frozen as well. Just thaw your salmon and shrimp and continue with recipe. ☺

  • Ann 05/06/2017, 2:45 pm  ξ˜‰

    I would like to be added to your email list. I could not understand your reply to 1 of the question and would like you to clarify please. Do you know the container counts for 21 day fix?

    • admin 05/09/2017, 4:50 pm  ξ˜‰

      Hi Ann,
      I am sorry, I do not know the amount that would be. There are many websites online where you can input the ingredients and it will calculate them for you. πŸ™‚ Hope that was helpful. If you have any other questions, e-mail me [email protected]

    • Mila 05/17/2017, 7:58 pm  ξ˜‰

      I was on 21 day fix and I would say that 1 piece of salmon depending how large you cut it but maybe about 4-6 oz will be 1 red container and you can maybe do 6-8 asparagus spears (depending how large they are) as 1 green container.

    Is the garlic powder or fresh minced?

    • admin 12/13/2016, 7:35 pm  ξ˜‰

      Garlic powder☺☺…

  • Inna 11/02/2016, 3:43 pm  ξ˜‰

    Made this for lunch today. It was really good ? the kids loved it too. Will be a regular dish from now on. We eat salmon and shrimp all the time. Husband is not a big fan of asparagus, the kiddos didn’t want to eat it cuz daddy doesn’t eat it, but I made them try just one piece each. And the next thing I know they’re reaching for more asparagus ? thank you again!

    • admin 11/02/2016, 11:42 pm  ξ˜‰

      I absolutely love feedback like this, Inna:). Especially easy and simple meals like this. THANK YOU so much for sharing. πŸ™‚

  • Evita 08/28/2016, 8:50 pm  ξ˜‰

    should you cover the baked pan with foil as it cooks?

    • admin 08/29/2016, 1:40 am  ξ˜‰

      Do you mean top a foil over all the ingredients? If so, nope:) Just leave it open as it bakes..

  • Katie 07/31/2016, 9:14 pm  ξ˜‰

    This looks delicious! Do you serve any other items with it? Rice or something like that? Or would you say it’s complete by itself? It looks amazing, I am just bad at finding a great entree recipe and not knowing what sides to put with it!

    • admin 08/01/2016, 11:57 am  ξ˜‰

      Hi Katie, Oh it truly is!! You can use anything, really. I think we’ve had it with baked potato, mashed potato, rice or even noodles. You’re in for a treat…:)
