  • Step 2/3

    Cut the lemon in half. Cut one half into slices or quarters, grate the zest from the other half and set aside. Halve the salmon, season with salt and sprinkle the lemon zest on top. Now wrap the salmon fillet in the cedar sheets and tie closed kitchen twine. Heat a grill pan to high heat. Drizzle the surface with a little oil. Add the salmon package to the pan and cover with a smaller pan to capture the smoke. Cook for 3-5 min on one side (this depends on the size of your salmon piece, watch the recipe video above for tips), then flip and cook a further 3-5 min. Remove salmon once it’s cooked through.

    Brush the asparagus with a little oil and salt. Add to the same pan the salmon was cooked in, tossing well until cooked through but al dente, approx. 3 min. Remove salmon from the package, serve with asparagus, and garnish with the dill mixture and lemon slices. Enjoy!
