Grilled Herb Salmon with Asparagus


  • 4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb. asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced (plus additional wedges for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 3 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 3 tsp. minced garlic
  • fresh thyme or parsley, for garnish


  1. Season salmon generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Arrange lemon slices, one salmon fillet, and 1/4 of the asparagus in the center of one 12×12 inch piece of foil. Repeat with remaining lemon slices, salmon, and asparagus on 3 other pieces of foil.
  3. In a small bowl mix butter, Italian seasoning, and garlic. Drop large dollops of the herb butter on top of the salmon and asparagus.
  4. Fold the foil tightly around the salmon and asparagus, being sure to seal the ends together tightly so the juices and butter don’t run out while cooking.
  5. Grill over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes on each side, until asparagus is tender and salmon is flaky.
  6. Drizzle fresh lemon juice over the top and add thyme or parsley for garnish.
