Orange-Glazed Salmon with Asparagus

  • Author: wellness sleuth

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


One of my favorite easy, healthy weeknight dinners is this Orange-Glazed Salmon with Asparagus recipe. It’s packed with flavor, but comes together in less than 30 minutes – perfect for those busy nights! The salmon is first coated in a simple orange glaze made with fresh oranges, and garlic.



4 6-oz. each salmon filets, preferably wild-caught Alaskan
3 tablespoon fresh orange juice
2 teaspoon honey
3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1½ lb. asparagus, tough end removed
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


    • Preheat the 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
  • Arrange asparagus around the salmon filets in a single layer and place the 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.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately.
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
