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
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!
