  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/390°F.
  2. Season well with salt and pepper both sides of the salmon pieces.
    Tip: Freshly ground pepper makes a real difference in taste.
  3. In a medium baking dish, place salmon filets with skin side down, top with two dill springs per filet and drizzle with lemon juice.
  4. Add lemon wedges creating a circle around the salmon and add the asparagus and tomatoes.
  5. Drizzle with 5 Olive oil.
  6. Bake with lid off for about 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
    Tip: If you prefer your salmon cooked “rare”, bake for ~10 minutes.
  7. Optional: Meanwhile you can prepare some wild rice to accompany your dish. Cook rice according to the instructions on the package. Drizzle with some 5 Olive oil in the end for an extra punch of flavor.
