Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus snapped and rinsed (see tips in post)
  • 1 pint sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 lb salmon fillet
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Enjoy. Drink the sauce when you're done.
