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, salt and pepper. I even got lucky and 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 end of the asparagus off. Drizzle the asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Apply the butter mixture generously to the salmon…use it all! Top the salmon with the citrus slices. Top everything with the halved cherry tomatoes.

Place in oven and roast for about 12 minutes. Half way through, 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 baked very slowly.
