Quick and easy salmon and asparagus in a tasty lemon, miso-butter sauce that is wrapped in foil and baked until tender, moist and melt in your mouth good!
Miso paste is a Japanese style fermented soy bean paste that has a great umami flavour and it is simply amazing when combined with butter! I particularly enjoy this flavour combination with salmon (or trout) and this lemon miso butter parchment salmon with asparagus is a way to enjoy them. These packets contain a full meal starting with thinly sliced potatoes and onions, moving on to fresh asparagus, the salmon and the miso butter sauce. In addition to the miso and butter, the sauce contains lemon juice, garlic, dill, and parmesan cheese; yum! Everything is wrapped up in foil or parchment paper and baked or roasted in the oven until the salmon is just cooked and the vegetables are tender. While everything bakes the miso-butter sauce melts and drips down onto the veggies infusing them with it’s flavour as well! This lemon miso butter parchment trout comes together with almost no effort and it bakes in only a few minutes making this a nice 20 minute meal that is perfect for any occasion, and it’s pretty healthy to boot!
You can wrap these tasty parcels of goodness up in either aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Bake these in the oven or in the barbecue/grill!
