Asian salmon with rice noodles and asparagus

I think this may be my new favorite salmon recipe, or one of them

Got the recipe from here

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.

2 tbsp sesame oil
3 tbsp honey
4 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp rice vinegar
4 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
a pinch of ground ginger
1 and 1/2 pounds of salmon
8 oz very thin rice noodles
2 bunches fresh asparagus (you can do 1 bunch I did 2 as I LOVE asparagus)
salt & pepper, to taste
olive oil

cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

while salmon marinates, I made a 2nd batch of the sauce and brought it to a boil, then let it simmer, and then turned it down to low until I needed it.

Then follow the instructions on the package for the rice noodles and cook them. I think mine cooked in like 5 minutes. It was so fast. Drain and set aside

Then grab the asparagus

wash and cut the ends off

I placed mine in a cast iron skillet, coated the bottom of the pan with a little olive oil and spread the asparagus out in the pan and drizzled a little olive oil over the top as well

Seasoned them with salt and pepper, to taste

Then I placed the asparagus in the oven and baked for about 20 minutes

while the asparagus was baking, I grabbed the salmon out of the fridge 10 minutes before I baked it to take the chill off . Then I threw the salmon (In the same pan I marinated it in) in the oven with the asparagus and baked for 10 minutes at 350 degree, then I switched pans and placed the salmon on a broil safe pan and threw it back in the oven and broiled it for a few minutes until it caramelized the way I wanted it. I removed the asparagus when the 20 minutes was up and set that aside and continued broiling the salmon until I got the color I liked. (Might have been more than a few minutes).

When I got the color I was looking for, I turned the oven off and removed the salmon and then grabbed a plate and placed some rice noodles on the plate, Then I cut the salmon in half and then I grabbed a spatula and slid it under the salmon and removed the skin and then I took the salmon and broke it up into bite size pieces and then placed the salmon pieces on top of the rice noodles

Then I took the 2nd batch of sauce I made from the sauce pan and spooned a little over the top of the salmon pieces

Then I placed several pieces of asparagus on the side
