Citrus Salmon & Asparagus


I am certain that some of you have noticed by now that I, unfortunately, have not prepared salmon in a very long time, and no it’s not because I have lost my taste for salmon. I will always have a love for it. As it is not only delicious, but it too is extremely healthy. But the reason why I had to stop buying it for awhile is that it can be real costly. Therefore I don’t buy it as often as I probably should. However, I am going to do my best to buy it at least once a month.

So with that said, I purchased a real nice medium sized salmon fillet through this fantastic service called Instacart. I will give you a full review and more info on instacart later this week, but they are a grocery delivery service that have workers do your grocery shopping for you, and then they’ll deliver it to your home on front doorstep or at your place of work.

Finally, onto the original topic, I cut the fillet into equal portions and cooked a beautifully healthy, simple and delicious salmon recipe! Amazing flavors of oranges, lemon, and lime glaze these salmon fillets, and when roasted with asparagus spears, it quickly becomes a super flavorful one-pan meal. Healthy dinner ideas don’t get much easier or delicious than this!

One Sheet Pan Citrus Salmon Asparagus

Ingredients

4, (4-6 oz.) salmon filets
1, (8-12 oz.) bunch of asparagus spears, rinsed, woody ends removed

Glaze:

Zest and juice of one navel orange
1/4 c. lime juice
1/4 c. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. honey
2 cloves, minced garlic (about 2 tsp.)
2 orange slices, halved
salt and pepper

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or line with aluminum foil.

  1. Evenly place the asparagus on the previously prepared pan. Put the salmon filets on top of the asparagus. In a small bowl, mix the orange juice and zest, lime and lemon juice, honey and garlic.
  2. Once honey is completely dissolved, pour over the salmon and asparagus. Place an orange slice half on each of the salmon filets. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for twenty minutes. Remove from oven, and serve immediately.
