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.
HOW TO BAKE SALMON with SHRIMP:
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, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins one needs. When selecting salmon, be sure to use good quality salmon and shrimp. Don’t use farm-raised salmon or shrimp.
HOW TO COOK SALMON IN THE OVEN?
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.
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.
