You will need:

  • 500g potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 ½ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp black pepper

  • Salmon fillets (around 200g)

  • 2 ½ tbsp minced garlic

  • Fresh chopped parsley

  • ⅓ cup lemon juice + 1 sliced lemon

  • ½ cup melted butter

  • 3 bunches asparagus

  • ¼ cup chicken broth


Start off by peeling the potatoes and chopping them into wedges. Put all the chopped potatoes on a baking sheet pan. Add oil, minced garlic, salt and black pepper and toss together with potatoes. Heat an oven to 200°C and roast the potatoes for 15 min until they’re starting to soften and brown.

Then take out the sheet pan, push potatoes to the side and put the salmon down the center. Rub the salmon with garlic and chopped parsley. Add the asparagus to the other side of the pan.

Mix lemon juice with the melted butter and pour the mixture over the salmon and asparagus. Add the remaining salt and pepper and return the baking sheet pan to the oven for another 8-10 min until potatoes get tender and the salmon – opaque with crispy golden edges.

While baking, combine the remaining butter, garlic and lemon juice with chicken broth in a small bowl. Serve the mixture with the salmon, potatoes, asparagus and lemon slices.
