Easy Fixins

Do you ever have those days when you’ve been busy all day and when it comes time to preparing dinner you’re out of gas? That’s when I hope there’s something in the pantry or refrigerator that will combine in a simple to fix and tasty meal.

IMG_0291This night there were two salmon filets and a bunch of asparagus, and in just a few minutes they were in the oven roasting away.

IMG_0297While they were cooking, I whisked together a tangy sauce of key lime juice and soy sauce to pour over the fish and asparagus.

Roasted Salmon and Asparagus

2 salmon fillets, skin on

Salt and pepper

Olive oil

1/4 c. fresh lime juice

1 T. soy sauce

1/2 t. sugar

1 t. Ground coriander


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut dry ends from asparagus. Arrange salmon and asparagus in shallow baking pan,  season with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil.

Roast until salmon is no longer pink in the middle and flaky and asparagus is tender but still a little crisp, 20-25 minutes.

Whisk together lime juice, soy sauce, sugar and coriander. Spoon sauce over fish and asparagus and serve.

Now, that’s what I call simple and while the salmon and asparagus were roasting, there was even time to sit for a few minutes!  I guess I could have fixed a salad, too, but sitting was just too hard to  resist!
