This grilled salmon and asparagus is incredibly delicious and ready in less than thirty minutes. It's the perfect summer meal!
- 1 pound skin-on fresh salmon fillets
- 1/2 pound fresh asparagus
- 3 teaspoons olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons butter melted
- zest of one medium lemon
- juice of 1/2 medium lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- fresh parsley
Preheat the grill to medium high heat.
Prepare the salmon and asparagus by drizzling with olive oil, and sprinkling with salt and pepper. Be sure to brush the olive oil evenly to cover the entire surface of the salmon.
Place the salmon on the grill, skin side up. Add the asparagus to the grill. Cook 6-8 minutes, then carefully flip the salmon using a thin spatula. Rotate the asparagus to ensure that it cooks evenly. Cook the salmon for an additional 5-6 minutes with the skin side down, then remove the salmon and asparagus from the grill.
To make the lemon garlic butter, whisk together the melted butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, and garlic powder. Pour the butter over the cooked salmon and asparagus, and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Serve immediately.
