Baked Shrimp & Salmon Recipe

I love one-pan meals. Throw everything on, throw it in the oven, and enjoy a great meal once the cooking is done. With only one pan, cleanup is a breeze too! This is a great, healthy, one-pan baked salmon recipe with shrimp and asparagus. I think this would be great served with rice – or, for an even healthier option, try cauliflower rice!

Ingredients

Serves 6

  • 2 lbs fresh salmon fillets
  • 1 lb large shrimp, uncooked
  • 3 Tbsp oil (olive or canola)
  • 1/2 lb asparagus
  • 1 large lemon, sliced
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, sliced
Seasoning
  • 1 ½ tsp ground paprika
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder

Directions

  1. Devein shrimp and remove the tail, if desired. Trim ends of asparagus.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  3. Combine all ingredients for the seasoning.
  4. Cut salmon into four or five equal parts.
  5. Arrange salmon and asparagus on a large baking sheet. Season salmon and asparagus (there will be leftover seasoning). Add lemon and butter slices to salmon and on the asparagus. Drizzle with oil. Bake 5 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, season shrimp and toss to coat.
  7. Add shrimp to baking sheet, spread out evenly. Add leftover butter and lemon over shrimp. Return to oven. Bake another 7-9 minutes, until shrimp and salmon are fully cooked.
  8. Pour the butter juices over the salmon, shrimp and asparagus.
  9. Enjoy
