While this was pretty good I think I still prefer my salmon cooked on a BBQ pit. The sauce was really thin which I think it should have cooked down a little more and it would have been better, but overall it’s an easy dish for those busy weeknights.
Roasted Salmon and Asparagus with Balsamic-Butter Sauce
(Adapted from Kitch Me)
4 oz salmon fillet
8 oz asparagus
2 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1⁄2 tsp soy sauce
1 1⁄2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Heat oven to 400 F. Toss asparagus with olive oil and brush a light coat of oil on salmon, placing both on a baking sheet together. Season with sea salt and pepper.
Place in oven to cook for approximately 10 minutes or until desired doneness of fish and asparagus is reached.
While they roast, make butter sauce: Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until lightly browned (careful not to burn). Remove butter from heat and add soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.
Remove fish and asparagus from oven, arrange on serving plate or platter and pour sauce over top to serve.
