✔︎ 2 1/2 Tbsp of Vegetable Broth or Stock

✔︎ 3 Cloves of Minced Garlic

✔︎ 5 Tbsp of Butter Cut Into Small Squares

✔︎ 1 1/2 Tbsp of Hot Sauce

✔︎ 1 Bunch of Asparagus washed & Trimmed

✔︎ Salt & Pepper For Seasoning

-Preheat oven to 425°F.

-Take 3 long slices of heavy duty tin foil (or double wrap regular foil) and use this as your base for each piece of salmon.

-Divide the asparagus evenly for 3 servings.

-Mix broth, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl.

-Season your salmon on both sides with salt and pepper to taste.

-Place 1 piece of salmon on center of your foil and layer asparagus on one side.

-Spoon your garlic sauce over the salmon and asparagus.

-Repeat for all 3 pouches.

-Divide the butter evenly over the 3 pouches and place on top of salmon and asparagus.

-Fold the foil lengthwise and bring in the edges so the broth does not spill out. Wrap loosely at the top.

-Place the pouches on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. (The internal temp should be about 145°F.


Garnish with lemon slices and fresh chopped herbs (we used parsley) but basil or cilantro would pair nicely too. Enjoy!
