Salmon is my go-to for fish and one of the easiest meals to put together particularly for dinner. Pan-Grilled salmon with asparagus is an ideal mix for this beautifully moist fish. A generous portion of the salmon fillet is grilled to perfection in a piping hot pan, cooked through in the oven or stove, and paired with delicate sautéed asparagus. A bright and light spring meal or lazy weekend dinner.
Tilapia, I still love you, but salmon, you’ve stolen my heart!
2 tbsp. olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
2 springs of fresh thyme
- Season salmon fillet with salt and black pepper
Preheat 2 tbsp of olive oil or butter in skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes
- Add chopped garlic and thyme springs
Add salmon filet, asparagus, and lemon wedges and cook for 3 minutes on each side
Remove from heat and serve
This meal also goes really well with mashed potatoes or potato wedges and feel free to switch up the vegetables to your preference.
This fish has its own particular flavors so toning it down would be best when you’re seasoning it
