How would you like an easy, quick and super flavorful recipe for salmon? This recipe for One Pan Roasted Salmon is it! Roasted, or grilled in under twenty minutes. Dinner is served! Make a lot. Leftovers are amazing and can be enjoyed for up to two days stored in the fridge. This salmon would make for a lovely topping for a salad the next day. Also, feel free to substitute the salmon with another one of your favorite types of fish. Grouper, Mahi-Mahi, or Sea Bass would also work beautifully.

If you are local to Charlotte, pick up your fresh fish at The Carolina Meat & Fish Co. Not local, they can ship to you! Although, not traditional, this One Pan Roasted Salmon would make a great addition to your Feast of the Seven Fishes celebration on Christmas Eve.

Preheat oven or grill to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with non-stick foil or parchment paper. If you are doing on a grill, use non-stick foil. Use enough foil to build a wall around the fish and asparagus so all the juiciness stays inside.

In a bowl, combine the softened butter, garlic, lemon juice, orange juice, lime juice, fresh parsley, kosher salt and black pepper. I got super lucky that two of my best friends’ daughters helped me prepare this meal!

Lay the salmon (skin side down or you can even have the skin removed) in the center of the pan with the asparagus surrounding. Be sure to cut the woody ends off of the asparagus. Drizzle the asparagus with olive oil. Season with kosher salt and black pepper.

Apply the butter mixture generously to the salmon. Be sure to use it all. Top the salmon with the citrus slices. Toss the halved cherry tomatoes all over the pan.

Place in oven and roast for about twelve minutes. Half way through roasting, throw in a few fresh thyme sprigs. After the salmon has roasted, turn on the broiler and broil for a minute or so. That is all she wrote. ENJOY this quick and easy recipe for One Pan Roasted Salmon. How about giving my Olive Oil Salmon a try too? It’s a whole new way to enjoy salmon that is very slowly, at a low temperature.


I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
