Sheet Pan Salmon and Asparagus



Aaahhhh salmon season has officially opened here in Washington. I just spied the first Copper River salmon at the store the other day #BeStillMyHeart  So this quick and easy Sheet Pan Salmon and Asparagus immediately popped into my head.


It is funny. When I first moved here from San Diego I was not a salmon fan. Actually I wasn't much of a fish eater at all. Oh, I had my occasional tilapia, but the couple of times I tried salmon left me seriously wondering what all of the hubbub was about. I just wasn't feelin' it.

But over the course of the time that I have lived here, salmon has become an obsession with me. I seriously get all giddy inside when I start seeing those gorgeous fresh caught fillets gracing the window of the butcher shop. 

Think 5 year old at Christmas, yup that's me 

So, with salmon on the brain, I decided to bust out one of new fave ways to cook....sheet pan baby! I do so love a one pan plan. Les fuss, less muss, less cleanup, YES!

The hardest part of this recipe? 

Pulling pin bones, if there are any. 

I have a special set of pliers just for that purpose. I love it when people go into my silverware drawer, and ask Ummm why do you have tools in your kitchen drawer?.

In case I need to fix the plumbing while I am cooking!

Some people actually believed me!

WOW, I know my house is old, butt geeeeeeez.

OhhhEmmmmGeeeeee just scrolling past those pictures makes me want to jump in the car and rush to go get more salmon! #drooling

The kids happened to stop by as this was coming out of the oven.

It is amazing how they do that. Remind me to check for hidden cameras!

So this whole pan disappeared EXTREMELY fast. I had to remind people to slow down enough to taste the food!!

All joking aside, this has got be one of my fave recipes for salmon. Quick and easy, and oohh sooooo good! 

And if I have leftovers I make a nice salmon spread for sandwiches the next day YUM!!
