Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15-18 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

 

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 fillets in a single layer and place sheet pan in preheated 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.
  5. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Enjoy!

Tip!

Hate that “yucky white stuff” that sometimes appears on the surface of cooked salmon? The white stuff is called albumin and it’s due to a naturally occurring protein in the fish. Overcooking is one common cause for it to appear, but it will often pop up regardless — unless you brine the salmon first.
