Sheet pan dinners are such a great way to get a healthy dinner on the table in very little time. Of course, I love that by only using a sheet pan to cook it on, there is minimal clean up involved. I already make Sheet Pan Pork Chops, roasted pork tenderloin, and sheet pan sausage and veggies for those nights I need a quick but healthy dinner. Now, this salmon is another amazing recipe I can add to my meal plan rotation.

Salmon Sheet Pan Dinner
You won’t need any special equipment. All you need is a three-quarter sized sheet pan or the more common 13” x 18” half sheet pan. I also add a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat to my pan to make clean up even easier.
The salmon and asparagus are both coated with the orange glaze making this dish one that is bursting with flavor.

Orange glazed salmon with asparagus in an easy one-pan dinner
- 4 6 ounce Salmon filets preferably wild-caught Alaskan
- 3 Tbsps Orange Juice
- 2 tsp honey
- 3 Tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1.5 lbs asparagus tough end removed
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Place the salmon filets skin side down in the center of the baking sheet and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the orange juice, honey, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and garlic. Generously season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and brush over the salmon.
Add the asparagus to the bowl with the orange juice mixture and gently toss to combine. Season with additional salt and black pepper, to taste.
Arrange asparagus around the salmon fillets in a single layer and place sheet pan in a pre-heated oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or just until the salmon is flaky and the asparagus develops a bit of color, being careful to not overcook the salmon.
Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
