Ingredients
  • 1.2 lb wild atlantic salmon, skin on (yields ~1lb without skin)
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed (200 grams)
  • 1 large sweet potatoes, cubed (300 grams)
  • 1/4 cup HEB Basil Pesto (50 grams)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Flavor God Garlic Lover's Seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil.

  2. Toss sweet potatoes in olive oil and arrange in a single layer on lined baking sheet. Season with 1/2 tsp Flavor God Garlic Lover's Seasoning. Bake for 20 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached.

  3. As sweet potatoes bake, line a second baking sheet with foil and arrange 4 salmon filets on sheet, skin down. Season with remaining Flavor God Garlic Lover's Seasoning. Bake for 12 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

  4. Add asparagus to a microwave safe glass dish (I like using a rectangular Pyrex dish). Cover with a very damp paper towel and microwave for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until asparagus is bright green and tender crisp. Immediately remove to an ice bath to stop the cooking, then pat dry and chop into large pieces.

  5. Serve salmon, sweet potatoes, and asparagus with 1 tbsp pesto per serving.
