  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced purple potatoes
  • 2 8-oz boneless, skinless center-cut salmon fillets,
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 12 spears asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 2 sprigs thyme


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut 2 large squares of parchment paper. Fold each square of parchment paper in half. Starting on the folded side, cut a half heart shape out of the paper. Open the fold and you should see a heart shape.
  • For each parchment paper packet: drizzle 1/2 teaspoon olive oil on one half of the paper. Arrange the potatoes over the olive oil. Place the salmon on top of the potatoes and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Place the asparagus around the salmon. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the salmon and asparagus. Arrange the lemon slices on the salmon and place the thyme sprig on top.
  • Fold the parchment paper over and roll edges together starting with the rounded side. At the pointy end of the paper, fold it back towards the rolled side and roll it in to seal. Repeat with the other packets.
  • Place fish packets on a baking sheet and place in the middle of the preheated oven. Bake approximately 20 minutes or until fish and vegetables are cooked through.
  • To serve, open packet and discard thyme sprigs. Transfer to a plate. Each packet should be 2 servings.


Nutrition Nugget: Not only do purple potatoes add a splash of color to your dish, they are also deliciously nutritious. They are rich in antioxidants, as well as a great source of potassium and vitamin C.

We (Lesley and Ann) first met years ago while training for Ironman Wisconsin. Our paths crossed again at Georgia State University while studying to become registered dietitian nutritionists. Over the years, our paths kept crossing and we soon discovered that we shared a love for menu planning. This blossomed into My Menu Pal where we help the food industry up their nutrition game to become their customer's nutrition hero.
