2. While the oven is heating, prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

3. Trim the tough ends of the asparagus spears.

4. In a bowl, toss the asparagus with olive oil, minced garlic, dried dill, salt, and pepper. Ensure the asparagus is evenly coated.

5. Spread the seasoned asparagus evenly on the prepared baking sheet.

6. Place the salmon fillets on top of the asparagus.

7. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over each salmon fillet and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

8. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

9. While the dish is baking, chop some fresh parsley leaves for garnish.

10. Once done, remove the baking sheet from the oven, garnish with fresh parsley, and serve immediately.

And there you have it – a quick dinner that’s both nutritious and balanced!
