Garlic Butter Salmon with Asparagus and Potatoes

Tender garlic butter baked salmon with crispy roast potatoes, asparagus and a delicious garlic butter sauce, all baked on a sheet pan for an easy dinner


  • 1 pound (500 g) fingerling potatoes, halved (or Yukon golds or halved white/red baby potatoes)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper, divided

  • 4 (6 oz | 170 g) skinless salmon fillets

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided

  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter

  • 3 bunches asparagus, (18 spears, woody ends removed)

  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine (substitute with 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth)

  • 1 lemon sliced to garnish


    • Heat oven to 400°F | 200°C. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss together potatoes with the oil, 1/2 tablespoon of garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread out in an even layer and roast for 15 minutes until they're just starting to soften and brown.

    • Push potatoes to one side of the sheet pan and arrange salmon down the centre. Rub salmon evenly with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of parsley. Add the asparagus to the other side of the pan. 

    • Combine 1/4 cup of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of the melted butter together and pour the mixture over the salmon and asparagus. Season everything with the remaining salt and pepper.

    • Return to oven and continue baking until the potatoes are golden and fork-tender and the salmon is opaque throughout, (about 10 minutes). Optional: broil in the last 2 minutes for charred edges. 

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining butter, garlic and lemon juice with the wine (or chicken stock). Serve with the salmon, veggies and lemon slices

This was my 1st attempt at a sheet dinner. It was awesome and I ate it all in one sitting.
