Fish Friday - The Northstar Way

Uncategorized Mar 10, 2023

Friday Fish nights are a common Midwest tradition, especially for those that practice Lent. However, most Fish Fridays at restaurants consist of beer-battered fish with plenty of fries on the side. If you're looking to keep this tradition, but still keep it  healthy, this recipe is for you!


  • 4 boneless skineless salmon fillets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound asparagus ends trimmed
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced, (plus additional wedges for garnish)
  • ½ cup butter at room temperature
  • 3 teaspoons Italian seasoning or Herbs de Provence, see note
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • fresh thyme or parsley, for garnish


  • Season salmon generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Arrange one salmon fillet and 1/4 of the asparagus in the center of one 12x12 inch piece of foil. Repeat with remaining salmon and asparagus on 3 other pieces of foil. Slide lemon slices under the salmon and asparagus.
  • In a small bowl mix butter, Italian seasoning, and garlic. Drop large dollops of the herb butter on top of the salmon and asparagus.
  • Fold the foil tightly around the salmon and asparagus, being sure to seal the ends together tightly so the juices and butter doesn't run out while cooking. Grill over medium high heat for 6-8 minutes on each side, OR bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, until asparagus is tender and salmon is flaky.
  • Drizzle fresh lemon juice over the top and serve immediately.
