- 4 skin-on salmon fillets (6-ounces each)
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sugar

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Arrange salmon in a shallow baking pan. Season with salt and pepper. Roast until no longer pink in the middle and flaky, 10 to 13 minutes. Using a flat spatula, remove fillets, leaving skin on the baking sheet.
In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, soy sauce, and sugar; fold in cilantro. Spoon sauce over fish, and serve with asparagus.
