  • 12 oz salmon
  • 1/4 cup date paste
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1 lb asparagus
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat your oven to 350° F
  • Line a broiling pan (the top pan) with tin foil, cutting holes in the slits.
  • In a small bowl, combine the date paste with the dijon mustard. Set aside
  • Lay your fish fillets skin down on one side of the tin foil covered pan.
  • Spread the date paste and dijon mustard mixture over the top of the fish. Then, top the fish with some crushed walnuts.
  • Prepare the asparagus by cutting off some of the woody ends (the end that is not the "tree" like one). Toss them in some olive oil and salt and then add them to the other side of the tray.
  • Cook your fish and asparagus for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and enjoy!
