  • 4 14-inch square foil pieces (you can use parchment paper, if preparing in the oven)
  1. Place 1/4 lb of the asparagus in the middle of each foil square. Sprinkle with about 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of black ground pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat.

  2. Place the salmon fillets on top of the asparagus. Sprinkle with 2 tsp kosher salt, 1/4 tsp black ground pepper, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika and 1/3 tsp dry garlic or freshly pressed garlic. Drizzle with olive oil.

  3. If planning to grill or oven roast right away, partially close the foil to expose the top of the salmon, or if you like the salmon to be steamed inside, close the foil all the way.
  4. To grill - throw on the grill for about 15 minutes on a preheated to about 400F grill, the time will depend on the thickness of the salmon fillet. You are looking for the salmon to be opaque in the middle.
  5. To oven roast - place the packets on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated to 450F oven for about 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon fillet. You are looking for the salmon to be opaque in the middle.
  6. Once the salmon is cooked through, serve right away with a lemon wedge, if you wish.
