Lemon butter baked fish is the perfect, easy sheet pan dinner recipe. Baked with asparagus and a delicious lemon butter sauce.
Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF and line a sheet pan with parchment/baking paper.
Combine the butter, lemon, garlic and herbs in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant then remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
Place the fish and asparagus onto the lined sheet pan then season with salt and pepper.
Pour the lemon butter sauce over the fish and asparagus and top the fish with lemon slices (optional).
Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the fish and asparagus are cooked. Fish is cooked when it flakes easily and the flesh is opaque, white throughout.
Remove from the oven and serve.
