Large Sheet Pan
1large russet potatoor 2 small
1poundasparagus spearswoody ends removed
2tbsp maple syrup
1/2tsp onion powder
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Remove woody ends of asparagus. Slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch thick sticks, leaving the skins on. Put both vegetables into a large bowl. Add the avocado oil, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir or cover and shake so that oil and seasonings evenly cover the veggies.
Place the salmon fillets skin side down on a parchment paper lined sheet pan. Mix the maple syrup and cajun seasoning in a small bowl. With a pastry brush, spread the maple cajun mixture evenly on the salmon.
Place the asparagus and potatoes on the sheet pan. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring the vegetables half way through. Once the salmon is cooked through (145 degrees F) remove from the oven and place on a seperate plate, covered to keep warm. Continue to cook the vegetables until fork tender, about 8 minutes. For the last 2-3 minutes place under the broiler for a golden brown finish.
