2 small sweet potatoes
1 small yellow onion
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
pinch sea salt
1 clove garlic, pressed
2 tsp dry mustard
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed
grated zest of 1 lemon
8 ounces wild salmon fillets cut into two 4 oz portions

preheat oven 425. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit a shallow baking pan.
Wash the sweet potatoes. Slice the potatoes and onion 1/4 inch thick. Put potato and onion slices on the baking pan in a single layer. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt. Bake for 15 mins.
Meanwhile, mix the garlic, mustard, lemon juice and rosemary to make a paste and set aside.
Remove the potatoes and onion slices from the oven (keep in the baking pan). Place the asparagus on the paper around the potatoes and onions. Sprinkle the lemon zest on the asparagus.
Lay the salmon on top of the asparagus and onions. Spread the paste on top of the salmon.
Return the pan to the oven and roast for 12 mins. Salmon is done when the flesh flakes with gentle pressure.
