Summer Catch: Foil Baked Salmon

Remember the days when summer was all about rest & relaxation? Then we grew up and summer break was no more. We’ve got to make the most of our nights and weekends which means dinners that require easy prep and less dishes are our best friend.

Prep for this one is about as simple as it gets. On a piece of foil, you’re going to make a bed with asparagus that the salmon will sit on, then top it with lemon and butter slices, wrap it up, and bake.

As far as dishes go, this recipe requires a baking sheet (that won’t get dirty), a cutting board, a knife, and the plate and fork you eat with. Easy clean up.

Now if you’re willing to dirty up one more dish, this tastes great with a side of wild rice, but that’s completely up to you. Scroll down for the full recipe.
