Most people either fall into the category that they enjoy seafood and fish &. or theyre on the extreme opposite end of the spectrum and they really dont like it! Which end are you on?!

I know its going to sound weird given this post has salmon in it, but I am not a fan of fish. Never have been and my mom can vouch for it!! Its not something we grew up eating very often, so really, I dont make it now that Im an adult. I also have very limited recipe ideas when it comes to cooking most fish since my exposure was pretty limited and for the most part, I never include it on our menu. Ive never taken to experimenting with it and I know its a shame.

However, there is one fish that I love to work with and I have tons of ideas for it! Salmon is my go-to fish and its one of the very few fish and/or seafood items that we eat quite regularly in the Love Bakes Good Cakes house! The only other fish or seafood I kinda know anything about it shrimp. I am so excited to share this with yall and I hope you give it a try even if youre not necessarily a fan of fish!! Its a favorite in the Love Bakes Good Cakes house!

So, this meal for six is made on a single sheet pan. If you need a fast, easy, healthy, and delicious meal idea this is the one!! If youre on Pinterest, Im sure youve seen a few sheet pan recipes floating around. Theyre quite popular for good reason! I love that there is minimal clean-up and its a meal I dont necessarily have to stand over and watch.

I almost always serve this with couscous cooked in chicken broth. Although its not included in the recipe, its super easy to make too just bring 3 cups of chicken broth or water to a boil. Turn off the heat and mix in 2 cups of couscous. Give it a stir and put a lid on it while the salmon and asparagus bakes. When its time to serve, just fluff it with a fork and voil, thats it! I like to add a bit of lemon zest and freshly chopped parsley to the cooked couscous when serving it with this Sheet Pan Lemon, Garlic & Herb Salmon with Asparagus but thats totally optional!

You will need a rimmed sheet pan that is at least 913-in. for this recipe. The one I use is slightly larger at 1217-in. You can find the one I use HERE.
