  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed, or as desired

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, or as needed

  • 1 (8 ounce) salmon fillet

  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add asparagus, cover, and steam until slightly tender, 2 to 4 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk together soy sauce and honey in a small bowl until glaze is smooth.

  3. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source; preheat the oven broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and brush with olive oil.

  4. Place salmon fillet and steamed asparagus on the prepared baking sheet; season with salt and pepper.

  5. Cook under the preheated broiler for 5 minutes. Drizzle 2/3 of the glaze over salmon and asparagus. Continue broiling until fish flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 5 minutes. Drizzle remaining glaze over salmon.
