Roasted Jack Salmon with Asparagus


  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs. whiting jack salmon
  • 2 bunches asparagus, bottoms trimmed
  • 2 bunches green onions, roots trimmed
  • 2 tbsp. capers
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh chives (or 2 tsp. dried chives)
  • 1 tbsp. fresh tarragon leaves (or 1 tsp. dried tarragon)
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • lemon wedges to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat butter and oil in a small saucepan over medium heat until melted. Stir in paprika and cayenne. Remove from heat.
  2. Season fish all over with salt and pepper and place on a rimmed sheet pan. Arrange asparagus and onions around fish; season with salt and pepper.
