Pesto Salmon and Roasted Asparagus

Healthy Fact of the Day

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health, brain function, and inflammation reduction. Asparagus is a nutrient-dense vegetable that provides fiber, folate, and a range of antioxidants.

Ingredients

 

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup basil pesto (store-bought or homemade)
  • Lemon wedges for serving (optional)

 

Instructions

 

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

  3. Place the asparagus on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat evenly.

  4. Arrange the asparagus in a single layer on one side of the baking sheet.

  5. Place the salmon fillets on the other side of the baking sheet and brush them with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  6. Spread the basil pesto evenly over the top of each salmon fillet.

  7. Roast in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and the asparagus is tender.

  8. Serve the pesto salmon and roasted asparagus hot, garnished with lemon wedges if desired.
