Oh my gosh this recipe rocked. It was super super super simple yet oh so flavorful. Make sure to pour the extra liquid over the salmon, asparagus and side (I made quinoa).


  • Zest 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup ow-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 4 6-oz boneless, skinless salmon fillets
  • 16 asparagus spears, trimmed




Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, whisk together orange zest, juice, soy sauce and ginger; set aside.

Cut 4 large pieces of parchment paper and place 1 salmon fillet onto each piece. Divide asparagus spears evenly among pieces of parchment, topping fillets. Pour orange-soy marinade over each fillet and, working with 1 piece of parchment at a time, wrap fillets in parchment paper. Bring top and bottom edges of parchment together. Pinch both parchment edges together at top and fold down in 1/2-inch sections, towards fillet. Fold each side of parchment in towards fillet in 1/2-inch sections.

Place parchment packets onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until salmon is solid and firm and asparagus is cooked through but al dente.
