“An easy, elegant dinner that's fun to make. The salmon is delicately infused with the flavor of the vegetables. If you like your asparagus more al dente, just skip the pre-steaming step.” - by Cathy Trout
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
- Place asparagus and water in a covered, microwave-safe, and vented bowl; steam in the microwave for 5 minutes.
- Rub salmon with olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, dill weed, salt, and black pepper; place in a foil oven bag. Toss spinach, capers, red onion, and asparagus with salt, black pepper, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in the foil oven bag. Place vegetables on top of salmon. Fold foil bag closed and place in a baking dish.
- Bake in the preheated oven until salmon flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes. Carefully split bag open with a knife to release steam.

"One of our favorite new recipes - especially now that we are eating healthy. My husband said this is the best meal I've ever made. (I don't know that I necessarily agree with him...but I do think it..." See more's delicious!) I did not make any adjustment to the recipe - except loosely wrapped in aluminum foil b/c I did not have a bag."
"The salmon was a little bland - so I will use a seafood rub and possibly add garlic next time I make this. I also only blanched the asparagus for a minute instead of steaming for 5 - I prefer it al d..." See moreente. So easy, and cooking in foil (parchment would have worked, too) made clean up a snap. I would also leave the spinach leaves whole next time - slicing them sort of lost them in the asparagus."
