1 lb. asparagus, trimmed

2 tbsp. olive oil, divided

1/4 c. freshly grated parmesan

  3. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in an ovenproof skillet over high heat. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper, then add to the pan, flesh side down. Cook until browned on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the fillets, brush on half the honey mustard, and place the pan in the oven. Bake until fish is firm and flakes easily (but before white solids begin to form on the surface), about 5 minutes. Remove fillets from the oven and brush with more honey mustard. Serve with asparagus.
