  2. 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  3. 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  4. 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  5. Freshly ground black pepper
  6. Sea salt, optional
  7. 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  8. Fresh dill sprigs

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut four sheets of aluminum foil, about 12” long each. Divide the asparagus spears evenly among the foil packets.
In a small bowl mix the oil with garlic. Drizzle1 teaspoon mixture over asparagus then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Layer each asparagus packet with a salmon filet.
