  • 4 salmon filets⁣
  • 1 bunch asparagus⁣ or broccolini
  • Kosher salt⁣
  • Black pepper⁣
  • Olive oil⁣
  • Lemon⁣


  • Preheat oven to broil. Position rack directly below broiler.⁣
  • Using a cast iron skillet or oven safe skillet, lay salmon fillets in single layer in center of pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay trimmed asparagus or broccolini over salmon. (Note: if you have thicker asparagus, you may need to cut them in half to cook more quickly and evenly with salmon). Drizzle with a bit more olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Squeeze 1/2 lemon over top. Place directly under broiler for 5 minutes.⁣
  • Remove salmon and veggies from oven. Squeeze remaining 1/2 lemon over top. Serve as is or over rice.
