Does anyone else feel like as soon as the weather turns nice you get ill? I’ve had a cold now for the past week and it’s driving me insane! I don’t really feel doing anything at all – I kind of just want to sleep until it goes away. But life doesn’t work like that 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
Thankfully this salmon recipe is making life just a little bit easier! It requires a handful of ingredients, it’s really easy to put together and it can be ready in under half an hour. Plus you’re getting some healthy fats and veggies and you can pair it with whatever you’ve got in the cupboard or fridge. It’s minimal effort but maximum flavour!
I’ve gone with the classic combination of lemon and dill to flavour this salmon, but we’ve also added a little bit of garlic and honey too. The honey adds a little bit of sweetness to balance out the acidity of lemon juice while the garlic just gives a little extra kick of flavour without it being too overpowering. By roasting the asparagus alongside the salmon it takes on some of the flavours of the marinade while also developing a little caramelisation for bonus flavour. Winner!
On top of all of that amazing flavour, this recipe is perfect for meal prepping. You could bake the salmon fillets and asparagus on a Sunday, pop it in a lunch box with some grains, potatoes or salad and you’ve got lunches sorted for the upcoming week. What’s not to love?!
