Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.
It may not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.
- Protein – Salmon Filets
- Fresh Produce – Orange, Garlic, Asparagus
- Honey – try to buy locally produced honey when possible.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

- 4 (6-oz170g) each salmon filets
- 3 Tbsp fresh orange juice
- 2 tsp honey
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1½ lb (680g) asparagus, tough end removed
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 200°C/0400°F/Gas 6 and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Place the salmon filets skin side down in the center of the baking sheet and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the orange juice, honey, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and garlic. Generously season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and brush over the salmon.
- Add the asparagus to the bowl with the orange juice mixture and gently toss to combine. Season with additional salt and black pepper, to taste.
- Arrange asparagus around the salmon fillets in a single layer and place the sheet pan in the preheated oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or just until the salmon is flaky and the asparagus develops a bit of color, being careful to not overcook the salmon.
- Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
