Preheat oven or barbecue (grill) following instructions below.
Place each salmon fillet in the centre of one 12x18-inch heavy-duty aluminium foil piece. Divide the asparagus into 4 equal portions and arrange next to the salmon on each foil piece.
In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, lemon juice, garlic and parsley. Pour the garlic/butter mixture evenly over each piece of salmon and asparagus; season with salt and pepper to taste, and top each pack with the parmesan cheese (about 2-3 tablespoons per pack).
Tent with foil, tightly sealing the edges to prevent the butter being leaked, to create a foil packet.
