How Long Do You Cook Salmon and Asparagus in the Oven at 400ºF
Time will vary depending on the thickness of the salmon and asparagus. Try to get small, thin asparagus spears to ensure that it cooks within the same timeframe as the salmon. The salmon takes approximately 13-15 minutes to cook through. If you have to use thick asparagus spears you may want to cook them for 5-10 minutes before adding the salmon to the pan.
Broil on high the last 2-3 minutes to get a nice crust on top.
How do you know when the salmon is done?
Honestly, I’m just serving this to my family so I stick a fork in the thickest part of the middle to make sure it is pulling apart and flaky. After you make salmon a few times you can tell by looking and feeling it.
