One pan baked lemon garlic salmon & parmesan with asparagus is a meal you can prepare quickly and clean up your mess while it bakes in the oven. You get a complete, healthy dinner that is low carb, sugar-free, and Keto friendly! 

Salmon is a great recipe to have on your meal prep list. I love healthy salmon recipes! It’s so good for you and is very delicious. This is a really easy recipe that can be made on a sheet pan with fresh salmon or frozen salmon.

The salmon cooks quickly and is a complete dinner with asparagus cooked on the same pan! Salmon is a tasty fish – it doesn’t have a fishy taste. I think baking it is the best way to cook and enjoy flavorful salmon!
