Simple, nutritious and delicious, this is one of my favorite recipes for salmon. Aside from the fact that this dish looks like you spent the entire day in the kitchen (which you won’t!) there’s the added bonus of having far fewer dishes to wash afterwards.
  Salmon fillets 12 Ounce
  Fresh dill 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Asparagus spears 12
  Red bell pepper 1 , thinly sliced
  Whole wheat spaghetti 1⁄2 Pound
  Extra virgin olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

1) Lay out a flat sheet of aluminum foil and place
some fresh dill followed by a single salmon filet.
Season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper.
Top off with some more dill and red bell pepper
strips. Lay out a few asparagus spears on each
side of the filet and fold over your foil to
completely seal in the salmon and veggies.
2) Place sealed pockets on a baking sheet and stick
into a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
3) Meanwhile cook your spaghetti according to
package. Once cooked and drained, season your
pasta with salt, pepper, more chopped dill and 2
Tbsp. of olive oil.
4) Plate your pasta on a large serving dish and place
your steamed salmon and veggies on top. Garnish
with fresh lemon slices and enjoy!

Dill has long been cultivated as a herb throughout Europe and north Africa as well as in its native Asia. It was used by Egyptian doctors 5000 years ago and traces have been found in Roman ruins in Great Britain. In the Middle Ages it was thought to protect against witchcraft. The name dill is thought to have originated from a Norse or Anglo-Saxon word 'dylle' meaning to soothe or lull, the plant having the carminative property of allaying pain.
