Salmon and Asparagus one pan dinner in twenty minutes

This salmon and cheesy asparagus bake is the easiest dinner. There’s nothing better than relaxing after a long day of work, then come home and spend hours of cooking. Kidding!

We want to make our lives easier, so one-pan dinner ideas are a great way to get to spend the extra time with your family. This salmon and cheesy asparagus is rich with flavor, but an easy addition to a busy workweek. 

What kind of cheese is good with asparagus?

In this recipe, we use a blend of cheeses. However, you may want to try one of the following Italian cheeses, such as:

  • Pecorino Romano
  • Parmesan
  • Asiago
  • Fontina
  • Mozzarella

How do I make salmon and asparagus in one pan?  

You’ll want to make sure to bake the salmon and asparagus long enough to cook fully, about 12-15 minutes.

Next, add the cheeses and broil for the last 5ish minutes. This gives the lemons a nice caramelization and melts the cheeses to perfection.

You’ll want to keep a very close eye on the dish for the broiling portion. Enjoy!
