Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15-18 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

4 6-oz. each salmon filets, preferably wild-caught Alaskan
3 T. fresh orange juice
2 t. honey
3 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. balsamic vinegar
2 garlic cloves, finely minced

1½ lb. asparagus, tough end removed

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Place the salmon filets skin side down in the center of the baking sheet and set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the orange juice, honey, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and garlic. Generously season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and brush over the salmon.

  3. Add the asparagus to the bowl with the orange juice mixture and gently toss to combine. Season with additional salt and black pepper, to taste.

  4. Arrange asparagus around the salmon filets in a single layer and place sheet pan in pre-heated oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or just until the salmon is flaky and the asparagus develops a bit of color, being careful to not overcook the salmon.

Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
