One-Pan Salmon and Asparagus

  • Total Time: 15 minutes


This dinner is easy to follow, quick to whip up, requires few ingredients, and only one pan!


  • 220 grams asparagus
  • 250 grams salmon (or 2 pre-packaged portions)
  • 85 grams butter (about 3 tbsp)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 lemon wedges
  • Optional: other vegetables like kale, mushrooms, or broccoli
  • Optional: add other herbs or seasonings to up the flavour profile! Some good options include paprika, chili powder, onion powder or fresh herbs.


  1. Start by rinsing and trimming the asparagus. Pro-tip: break off the ends – they snap off easily!
  2. Then heat up the butter in a large enough frying pan to fit both salmon and the asparagus. Start with about 1 tbsp of butter.
  3. Add the asparagus, and heat for about 3-4 minutes. Once vibrant green in colour, move the asparagus to one half of the pan.
  4. Next, add more butter (if necessary) and add the salmon. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Be sure to mix the asparagus so it evenly cooks. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Divvy up onto two plates and serve with lemon wedges. Squeeze wedges over salmon.
  6. Enjoy!
