  • 1014 ounces fresh salmon
  • fresh dill or parsley for garnish

Mustard Vinaigrette Sauce

  • juice of 1 medium sized lemon
  • 2.5 tablespoons mustard (make sure it is SCD or Keto friendly)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey (or a couple of drops of liquid stevia for keto)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Roasted Asparagus

  • small bunch of fresh asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons thyme
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • salt + pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Go ahead and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for your asparagus and also line a baking dish for your salmon.
  3. Start with your asparagus: After they’ve been washed with the ends cut off and dried with a towel, spread the asparagus on your parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and then sprinkle the thyme, salt and pepper over top. Roll the asparagus until they are covered fairly evenly with the oil and spice. Sprinkle parmesan over top. Set aside.
  4. Next, put together your mustard vinaigrette sauce and prep the salmon: In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon, mustard, olive oil and honey until evenly combined. Add just a touch of salt and pepper + whisk again. Set aside. (Go ahead and place your asparagus into the preheated oven at this point, it needs just a few minutes more than the salmon to cook).
  5. We cut our 12 ounce piece of salmon in half to serve two and then place the pieces onto the parchment lined baking dish.
  6. Pour the mustard vinaigrette sauce over the salmon. Any leftover sauce can be poured directly into the dish as the salmon will cook in it, rendering it even more flavorful. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on desired doneness and size of salmon filets. Your asparagus and salmon should be done at about the same time.
  7. Serve salmon with roasted asparagus on the side and squeeze fresh lemon over both before serving if desired or serve with a lemon wedge.
  8. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Enjoy!
