2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme, divided
1¼ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon lemon zest
½ teaspoon plus ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
2 large shallots, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and divided
1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed
Garnish: chopped fresh thyme

1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line a 17½x12½-inch rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Sprinkle fish with 1 tablespoon thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, zest, ½ teaspoon black pepper, and red pepper.

3. Place 4 large pieces of parchment paper on a work surface. Place 3 lemon slices in center of each sheet. Place 1 fish fillet on lemons on each sheet. Divide tomatoes and shallots among fillets.
