I wish you would have had a window into my kitchen over the last few months. I was preparing and photographing 4 to 5 recipes a day which manifested into a tornado of food and photography props around my kitchen and living room. By the time I worked my way through the assemblage of dirty dishes, cooking dinner was not at the forefront of my mind. Rather than having Ryan pick up dinner on his way home yet again, I concocted a few simple weeknight dinners that took little to no creativity and could be prepared quickly. This recipe for Asian Glazed Salmon with Roasted Broccolini and Asparagus was a hit!
This meal can be on your table in 30 minutes. You frequently ask for more weeknight dinner options (yet my treats are the highest viewed posts on my site!), so I'm making an effort to present you with unique recipes that can be prepared quickly and use minimal dishes. Did you see my prosciutto and pesto chicken from last week? I do miss my treats though, so as soon as this 21-day sugar detox is over, I'll be back with something sweet for you!
I am also captivated with broccolini as of late. The thin stalks make it easy to prepare in a flash and are so tender and sweet. We most frequently roast it with pieces of asparagus in extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice and sprinkle it with savory garlic and sea salt. The salmon is basted in an Asian marinade of coconut aminos and fish sauce and rubbed with a bit of coconut crystals and ginger to balance the salt, resulting in a silky glaze after roasting.
This looks tasty!
Can’t wait for some spring dessert recipes after your detox!
This looks super delicious and if you plan ahead, you can use frozen salmon if you have to. (We use it quite a bit, not as good as fresh, but a lot cheaper). We have just recently discovered the joys of cooking fish in the oven (so it does not leave your kitchen in a fishy state), so we will definitely give this one a try.
Thank you!!!!!! I’m a college student and ADORE all of the recipes fr your site, but don’t often have the time to make them between studying, working, and performing (music major)! These faster recipes are such a blessing! <3

This looks so good…I love salmon! 🙂
This looks de-lish! Here’s hoping I can find broccolini in the store cause this is what is for dinner tonight! Oh, what is coconut aminos? Can I sub with Braggs liquid aminos? I could add coconut oil if needed.
Against All Grain
They’re a soy and gluten free soy sauce sub. You can sub with Braggs however it’s unfermented soy and not good for you. I would suggest using Tamari’s instead.
That looks amazing! I can’t wait for asparagus season to hit here, a couple more weeks I think.
Can I find coconut aminos in the grocery store, and if so, what section? Thank you!
Against All Grain
Yes, Whole Foods carries them in the Asian section 🙂
I made the salmon and broccolini/asparagus for dinner yesterday. I also made your parsnip/turnip puree to go along with it. The meal was a hit! It is back on the menu for next week! You are a genius!
Just made this. It is delish but next time I will leave the honey out.
I’ve been looking at coconut crystals. There’s a wise variety if pricing. Does brand matter as long as they’re organic?
Danielle recommends Madhava brand Organic Coconut Sugar. ~Eileen https://astore.amazon.com/againstallgrain-20/detail/B00BWXBVHK
