When it comes to weeknight meals, ease and speed are paramount! That’s what’s so great about this sheet pan salmon and asparagus recipe. The salmon is nestled amongst the asparagus so everything can be roasted together. With a quick mustard and maple syrup dressing, dinner couldn’t have gotten any better!
Lay the asparagus on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and rub to cover the asparagus in the oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and spread to an even layer.
1 lb asparagus, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp black pepper, 1 tbsp olive oil
In a small bowl, mix the Dijon mustard and maple syrup to combine. Nestle the salmon fillets in between the asparagus. Brush the top of the salmon with the prepared mustard and syrup. Sprinkle the brushed salmon with the everything bagel seasoning.
Place the sheet pan in the preheated oven. Roast until the salmon reaches 120°F and the asparagus is tender, 8-12 minutes. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and allow the salmon to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Top the asparagus with fresh lemon juice.
