One-pan salmon with asparagus, mushrooms, and balsamic brown butter sauce is the easiest, most delicious dinner - and it's ready in only 20 minutes! This is my new favorite meal!Adapted from CAE on Allrecipes.com.
1bunchasparagussnapped and rinsed (see tips in post)
1pintsliced button mushrooms
kosher salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
On a large sheet pan, toss asparagus and mushrooms in 1 tbsp olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Arrange in a single layer.
Place salmon fillets skin-side down on top of vegetables. Brush with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake for 15 minutes.
About 5 minutes before baking is finished, melt butter in a tiny saucepan over medium or medium-high heat. It will foam up – stir it constantly for a couple minutes until the foam subsides and the butter starts to take on a rich brown color.
When the butter is brown (careful not to burn it!) remove it from the heat and stir in the soy sauce and vinegar.
Remove the pan from the oven, and peel off salmon skin. Drizzle sauce over everything on the sheet pan.
