  • 3/4 tsp salt , divided
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil , divided
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chopped capers
  • 1/2 tsp pepper , divided
  • 1 bunch asparagus , trimmed
  • 2 garlic cloves , peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped dill
  • 1 lemon , cut into 4 wedges

Instructions

  • PREHEAT oven to 425F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
  • LAY salmon skin-side down in centre of prepared sheet. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp of the salt.
