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).

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

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.
