Baked Salmon with Asparagus

If broccoli isn’t your favorite, this recipe can be easily made with asparagus instead!

During the Spring months when asparagus is in season, definitely use this tasty veggie instead of broccoli!

This recipe, as written with broccoli, bakes in the oven at 400 degrees for approximately 12 to 15 minutes, or until your salmon is done to your liking.

If you use asparagus instead of broccoli, it will need less time in the oven, especially if the stalks are on the thinner side.

Asparagus will need about 10 minutes or so in the oven.

I would recommend either placing your asparagus on its own baking sheet and pop it in the oven a few minutes after you place your salmon in the oven, or if you truly want a one-sheet pan dinner, just remove the asparagus a few minutes early (or add to the pan a few minutes later).

Salmon with asparagus is a great alternative to broccoli

Sheet Pan Parmesan Baked Salmon & Broccoli


  • 4 salmon filets (defrosted if frozen)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, minced (or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes)
  • 1 Large Crown Broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or more for topping after baking)


    1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. Pat salmon until it’s completely dry and brush 2 tablespoons of olive oil on all sides. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray and place salmon on a baking sheet.
    4. In a separate bowl, drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over broccoli florets along with salt and pepper. Toss to coat fully.
    5. Place the broccoli in a single layer around the salmon on the baking sheet.
    6. Spread minced garlic and parsley over the top of the salmon and evenly distribute the Parmesan Cheese onto each filet patting the cheese down a bit.
    7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until salmon is cooked and broccoli is fork tender.
    8. If you prefer your broccoli a bit more browned, remove salmon from the baking sheet and continue roasting broccoli until you reach your desired brownness.
    9. If you’d like more cheese, sprinkle more Parmesan over the salmon and broccoli after it’s done baking, just prior to serving.
