Low Sodium Salmon with Lime and Herbs

Easy Low Sodium Salmon with Lime and Herbs

  • Author: JasonN
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


Salmon packets with fresh lime and herb seasoning and fresh asparagus. This low sodium meal is perfect for a quick dinner any night of the week.


  • 4 (6 oz.) salmon filets (fresh)
  • ½ cup herbs removed from stalk and finely chopped. (For instance: Dill, thyme, flat-leaf parsley, curly parsley, and rosemary)
  • 2 ½ tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning (no salt)
  • 2 limes, divided
  • 16 asparagus stalks


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the herbs, 2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon pepper, and the zest and juice of one lime.
  3. Place each salmon filet, along with 4 pieces of asparagus, on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to completely cover them, with space to spare to create a pouch.
  4. Divide the herb mixture between the salmon filets. Using a brush or spatula, spread the herb mixture all over the filets.
  5. Slice the remaining lime and top each filet with lime slices.
  6. Drizzle remaining olive oil over asparagus.
  7. Wrap the salmon in the foil so that the edges meet. Seal the edges, making a tight ½-inch fold, and fold up again.
  8. Place the packets on a preheated grill on medium heat and cook for 13-15 minutes. Or place the pouches on a baking sheet in a 400°(F) oven for 15-20 minutes.  The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork, or when it registers 145°(F) with an instant read thermometer.
  9. Garnish with any remaining herbs.
