What You'll Need
  • 20 ounces boneless salmon
  • 12 ounces asparagus (washed)
  • 3 1/2 cups cooked quinoa (~1.5 cups uncooked)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted, divided
  • 2 teaspoons garlic (minced and divided into 2)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme (fresh)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (dried)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (divided into 2)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of melted butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in 1 tsp minced garlic and cook until fragrant.
  3. Make the sauce: Add 1 tsp lemon juice, 0.5 tsp thyme, 0.5 tsp oregano, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp honey, 1/4 tsp salt, 0.3 tsp black pepper, and stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  4. Prepare the salmon and asparagus: Place salmon fillets onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, skin side down. Brush the top of each fillet with half of the glaze and save the other half for a later retouch. Place 12 oz asparagus onto the baking sheet and brush it with 1 tbsp butter.
  5. Broil the salmon and asparagus: Slide onto the top rack of the oven and broil for 7 minutes. Remember to set the timer.
  6. Cook the quinoa: As soon as the tray’s back in the oven, add 1 tbsp melted butter to the skillet and stir-fry 1 tsp garlic over medium heat. Add 3 1/2 cups cooked quinoa, season with 1/4 tsp salt, and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and prepare to assemble.
  7. Brush the salmon and broil again: When the timer dings, take the baking sheet out and brush the fillets once more with the remaining glaze. Slide it back onto the broiling rack and cook for another 5 minutes.
  8. Plate: When the fish is cooked, place the baking sheet on the kitchen counter and begin plating. Place a pile of quinoa in the middle, lift the fillet with a spatula and place it on top, and put the asparagus next to the fillet.
  9. Serve: Grate 1/2 tsp lemon zest over the top, and enjoy.
