Baked Salmon and Asparagus with Balsamic & Butter Sauce

This house loves salmon. I love that this tasty fish is full of omega-3 and is total brain food. I try to make it once a week so I’m always looking for new ways to dish it up. Our asparagus has been so yummy this year and it compliments salmon so nicely. This recipe is simple and has little prep and clean-up! Enjoy!- Amanda

Baked Salmon and Asparagus with Balsamic & Butter Sauce

1 lb. salmon fillets
1 bunch of asparagus
1T & 1t olive oil
sea salt and pepper
2 T unsalted butter
1 t soy sauce
3 t balsamic vinegar

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Gently 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 12 minutes or until desired doneness of fish and asparagus is reached.
While they bake, whip up the butter sauce: Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat until lightly browned. (Just keep watching and stirring to make sure you don’t burn the butter.). Remove butter from heat. Add soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.
Remove salmon and asparagus from oven, arrange on plates and pour sauce over top to serve.
