Oh, and another great thing about this recipe is that it comes together in just 30 minutes! Perfectly seasoned roasted salmon surrounded by crisp-tender asparagus and baby red potatoes is a dinner the whole family will love!
The potatoes need to be sliced very thin to cook thoroughly, but if you use a mandolin it makes slicing so much easier! My 2-pound salmon filet took 20 minutes to cook to my desired temperature, but cook time depends upon the thickness of your filet.
Hooray for sheet pan dinners!Print
- 1 pound thin asparagus spears, slice off thick ends and discard
- 1 pound baby red potatoes, thinly sliced
