Easy 6-Ingredient Sheet Pan Salmon and Asparagus

For some reason, I used to always struggle when it came to making a good home-cooked seafood meal from scratch. I don’t know why but I could just never get anything to taste right. That was the case for the longest time, until I started doing more experiments in the kitchen. One of the first seafood recipes I mastered was this baked sheet pan salmon and asparagus recipe.

As the name suggests, you only need six simple ingredients to prepare this yummy dinner: four salmon fillets (weighing approximately six ounces each), two pounds of asparagus, six tablespoons of butter, one whole lemon, ½ of a lemon that has been zested and juiced, two minced garlic cloves, and last but not least, two tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley.
