  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine citrus juices, garlic, thyme, pepper, and mustard.
  3. Coat salmon with Pritikin Fish Seasoning. In a large nonstick skillet over a hot flame on the stove, sear salmon on cut side until brown, about 2 minutes.
  4. Flip salmon, and pour citrus marinade over it. Immediately transfer salmon to oven, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. While fish is baking, steam asparagus. (Place your asparagus spears in a steamer basket inserted into a pot that contains 1 to 2 inches of boiling water. Cover, and steam till spears are bright green, usually about 3 to 8 minutes).
  6. When fish is cooked, drizzle with balsamic reduction and Italian parsley. Serve immediately with steamed asparagus.
