Salmon is one of my favorite go to proteins on nights when I don’t get home until late. You can have a delicious meal on the table in 30 minutes or less, and this recipe is no different.

This quick and easy one pan dinner is the perfect healthy weeknight meal. From start to finish, you can have this delicious, complete meal on the table in less than 25 minutes!

I have to say, I never cared for asparagus. Mainly because the only contact I had with it was from a can. Which is horrible smelling and mushy. Fresh asparagus, roasted in the oven is delicious.

This recipe will be on the menu for my hubby’s and my Valentine’s Day dinner. Just a a glass of wine. 😉
