Rosemary Roasted Salmon with Asparagus & Potatoes

Recipe By: Julia Levy

Yukon Golds are great here because they get crispy on the outside but completely creamy on the inside. A brush stroke or two of balsamic glaze provides a rich color and a sweet finish to the roasted salmon.

Servings: 4

Serving Size: 4 oz. salmon, 2 oz. asparagus & 2/3 cup potatoes


  • 3 tablespoons Opus Black
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 ¼ pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt, divided
¾ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
1 pound asparagus, trimmed
4 (5 ounce) skinless salmon fillets, preferably wild
1 medium lemon
2 tablespoons balsamic glaze 

  • ½ teaspoon whole-grain mustard


Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2

Stir together oil, rosemary and garlic in a small bowl. Place potatoes in a large bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil mixture and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Arrange the potatoes in an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast until lightly browned and tender, about 20 minutes. Push the potatoes to one end of the pan.

Step 3

Place asparagus in the large bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil mixture, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Arrange the asparagus on other end of the baking sheet. Roast until the asparagus is bright green, about 3 minutes. Push the vegetables to either end of the pan, leaving space in the center.

Brush salmon with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil mixture and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place the salmon in the center of the pan. Thinly slice half the lemon and tuck the slices around the salmon and vegetables. Roast for 5 minutes more. Cut the remaining lemon half into wedges.

Whisk balsamic glaze and mustard in a small bowl. Brush 1 tablespoon of the mixture on the salmon. Continue roasting until the salmon is just cooked through and the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Drizzle the vegetables with the remaining sauce. Serve with the lemon wedges.
