Foil Baked Salmon with Asparagus

Sometimes simple meals really are the best and this foil baked salmon recipe really couldn’t get any easier. Everything is baked (or grilled) together in one neat little packet that you can throw together in about 10 minutes. It also is perfect for customizing for picky eaters since you can easily swap in different vegetables, herbs, and even fish to please every palate in your home. Consider adding some tomatoes, red onions, zucchini, olives, and oregano for a more Mediterranean spin or limes, poblano peppers, summer squash, and chili powder for a southwestern twist.
