Sheet Pan Salmon and Asparagus

salmon and asparagus on a sheet pan

Sheet pan salmon and asparagus is a quick and healthy weeknight meal. Start to finish this is done in 25 minutes or less and some weeknights you just need that!  Switch up the sauce and side to add variety – I like to prepare the salmon with either pesto or baked with slices of fresh lemon.  The sides vary depending on what we have around, often quinoa, whole wheat pasta or RightRice.
