  1. Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Combine the breadcrumbs, parsley and 25g parmesan, then set aside. Heat the oil and butter in a large flameproof casserole over a medium heat and fry the onion for 5 mins until starting to soften. Stir in the garlic, and cook for 1-2 mins more to soften slightly, then stir in the cream, milk and remaining parmesan. Bring to a simmer and cook until the cheese has melted, then season well, stir and remove from the heat.
  2. Step 2

    Tip in the asparagus and ensure it is submerged in the sauce. Nestle in the salmon fillets, skin-side down. Scatter the cheesy breadcrumb mixture over the salmon fillets, then transfer to the oven and bake for 14-16 mins until the salmon is cooked through and the breadcrumb topping is lightly golden.
