  • Put each salmon fillet in the center of the foil piece and divide the asparagus into 4 equal portions. Place asparagus next to salmon on each foil piece. Season with ground black pepper and salt. 
  • Combine the melted butter, lemon juice, garlic and carom seeds ( or dill seeds) in a small bowl. Pour the mixture  over each salmon fillet and asparagus, diving equally.
