Salmon and Asparagus Recipe with Hoisin Glaze (One Pan Recipe!)
You guys. I’m an absolute SUCKER for sheet pan suppers. I’m obsessed. There’s just something so wonderful about only having ONE pot or pan to clean up after dinner is done. I also love with the side dish and main course cook together. Isn’t that totally magical?
This Hoisin Glazed Salmon and Asparagus is one of our new favorite healthy sheet pan suppers and we have already found ourselves making it again and again. You are in for a treat!
What is hoisin sauce and what does it taste like? And where can I find it??
Girrrrrl (or guy), I’m right there with you. I’m called the Cookie ROOKIE for a reason. I don’t always know about all the cool sauces and flavors and terms. Hoisin Sauce is an Asian flavors sauce made from a mixture of soy, garlic, vinegar, chili, and sweetener. It’s usually dark in color and slightly thick, making it the perfect sauce to pour over this salmon.
It can be found in the sauce or Asian aisle of your local grocery store or you can make your own! I’m choosing the easy route here by using store bought, and I don’t have any guilt at all about that. Sheet pan suppers are supposed to be EASY and SIMPLE and there’s no need to over complicate things!
Can you bake salmon and asparagus together on the same pan. Is Salmon and Asparagus healthy?
This may seem like a silly question since this recipe shows baking them all together, but I’m here to tell you you can use the same temperature and same cooking times for both the salmon and asparagus. The salmon will come out flakey and tender, and the asparagus will still have just the right amount of crunch but be fully cooked through. I love the way the flavors blend to create the perfect flavorful seafood dish.
This meal is definitely on the healthier side, although the hoisin sauce does add some calories. The salmon and asparagus without the sauce is under 300 calories! If you prefer a much healthier version, simply drizzle the salmon and veggies with some lemon juice and veggies but keep the cook times the same. Delish! (I mean I’m all about the sauce but you get the idea)
Can you freeze and recook salmon? How long would this Salmon and Asparagus recipe last in the fridge?
You can store the cooked salmon in the freezer for 4-6 months or in the fridge for 2-3 days as long as it is cooked through fully (proper internal temp should be 145F for Salmon). This makes a great reheated dinner the next night if it’s just the two of you like us. I don’t always recommend taking fish to work for a reheated lunch because…you don’t want your coworkers to hate you HA! But it’s delish the next day…I actually ate it for two days last time we made it!
