5 Ingredient Skillet Salmon

Hi, Friends! I made this ahhhhmazing super easy 5 ingredient skillet salmon dish a few weeks ago that I have to share. Not to brag, but I could have had plates of it… I already have a hankering for it again (hankering?! Who am I??). This dish only has 5 ingredients so very easy to put together quickly. We paired it with a brown rice mixture, perfect weeknight meal.

5 Ingredient Skillet Salmon


  • 3 pieces of salmon
  • 1/2 a container of cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 20 stalks of asparagus but into thirds
  • 1 or 2 shallots thinly sliced
  • jar of capers, liquid removed

*Assuming you have olive oil, minced garlic, s/p*


Preheat oven to 350. In a cast iron skillet over medium heat, add olive oil, minced garlic, and s/p. Then add the cherry tomatoes, asparagus, capers, and shallots, sauteing until softened slightly. In the meantime, sprinkle top and bottom of salmon with salt and pepper. Once the vegetables are softened, create space in the pan for the salmon, and place it in the pan. Put the skillet into the oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven when the salmon is cooked to your liking. Plate rice mixture and serve salmon and veggies atop of it. Enjoy!
