Greek Sheet Pan Salmon and Asparagus
This Greek-inspired one-pan meal is simple to make and perfect for busy weeknights. Guests will love this too! Serve with a side of rice, if desired. I prefer to use thick center-cut pieces of salmon, as they tend to remain more moist.
- 1½ pounds salmon fillet
- ½teaspoon garlic salt
- 1pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
- 3tablespoons olive oil
- 2tablespoons lemon juice
- 2teaspoons Greek seasoning
- ¼cup crumbled feta cheese
- 2tablespoons Kalamata olives, pitted and finely chopped
Step 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2Cut salmon into 4 even pieces and place in the middle of the prepared sheet pan. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Scatter asparagus around salmon.
Step 3Stir together olive oil, lemon juice, and Greek seasoning in a small bowl. Combine feta cheese and olives in a second bowl.
Step 4Brush half the oil mixture over salmon and drizzle the remainder over the asparagus.
Step 5Bake in the preheated oven until salmon easily flakes with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness of the salmon. Sprinkle salmon with feta mixture during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
