Ingredients

2 tablespoons Sunny Select Olive Oil
4 Master Catch Salmon Fillets (about 1-1/4 pounds)
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces (about 1 pound)
½ medium yellow onion, chopped
1 pint red and/or yellow grape tomatoes, each cut in half
1 small lemon

Preparation

In large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Sprinkle salmon with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side up, in skillet and cook 6 minutes. Turn salmon, cover and cook 4 to 6 minutes longer or until salmon is almost opaque throughout and internal temperature reaches 145°. Transfer salmon to plate; cover to keep warm.

In same skillet, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add asparagus and onion and cook, covered, 4 to 7 minutes or until asparagus is tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; cover and cook 2 minutes. To serve, top salmon with asparagus mixture and squeeze lemon juice over salmon.
