Baked Salmon with Asparagus & Mushrooms and a Very Busy Friday

I've been crazy busy since Wednesday preparing for my eldest daughter's birthday party tomorrow. It will be a Wizards of Waverly Place themed party. Not a big party though...she's just expecting 5 of her classmates and 2 of her friends from her old school. But just as always, I want it to be special by putting my personal touch in everything. I made her personalized party invitations, piñata and give-aways. I'll be preparing all the food, except for the pizza. (I don't have the courage to make my own yet.) I'm done with all the today until tomorrow morning will be all about cooking!

I'll be baking a chocolate cake and some cookies & cream cupcakes. I'll share the rest of the menu and some more pictures with you next week. For now, I better do my Meatless Friday post so I can start cooking for the party. LOL.

This dish that I'm going to share with you today is another one of those recipes that I came up with in search of new ways to cook salmon which is Clarise's most requested fish.  I simply call it Baked Salmon with Asparagus and Mushrooms. It has become my family's favorite since the first time I cooked it. 

Check it out! A truly quick and easy recipe that you won't regret trying! 

Prep Time: 5 mins               Cook Time: ~35 mins                Servings: 4                         

  • 4 pcs. Salmon fillet
  • 2 cups fresh button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 12 pcs. asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • 1/8 cup butter for sautéing
  • 2 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
  • Sea Salt & Pepper
  • 1/8 cup melted butter
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Saute mushrooms and onion in butter until onion starts to caramelized. Add 2 Tbsp oyster sauce. Mix well. Remove from heat and set aside.
3. Lightly grease a baking dish large enough to lay salmon fillets flat in a single layer.
4. Sprinkle salmon on both sides with sea salt & pepper and lay into greased baking dish.
5. Spread the sauteed mushrooms & onions on top of the salmon, and arrange asparagus on the sides.
6. Combine the melted butter, soy sauce and lemon juice and pour over the salmon and asparagus.
7. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 30 minutes or until the salmon is cooked. 

8. Serve with hot rice!
