Sheet Pan Salmon & Asparagus


– 4 (4-6 oz.) salmon filets – 1 (8-12 oz.) bunch of asparagus spears, rinsed, woody ends removed Glaze: – 1/4 cup orange juice – 1/4 cup lime juice (juice of 1 lime) – 1/4 cup lemon juice (juice of 1 lemon) – 2 Tbsp. honey – 1 Tablespoon orange zest (zest of 1 orange) – 2 Teaspoons minced garlic (about 2 cloves) – salt and pepper to taste – orange slices, for topping (optional)


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a sheet pan or with non-stick cooking spray, or line with parchment paper.

Step 2

Evenly place the asparagus on the prepared pan. Place the salmon filets on top of the asparagus.

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice and zest, lime and lemon juice, honey and garlic. Once honey is fully dissolved, pour over the salmon and asparagus. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Top each salmon filet with an orange slice, if desired.

Step 4

Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 16-18 minutes. To test for doneness, flake the salmon with a fork. If pink in the center it is done, if still red, it will need to cook longer. For best results, test with an instant read digital thermometer. Internal temperature needs to be at 135 degrees.

Step 5

Remove from oven, and serve right away.
