A fresh squeeze of lemon juice brightens so many flavors—acid is one of the most important influencers in how a dish tastes. If one acid is good, two is stronger: Add lemon and lime juice when you bake salmon, cooking the supporting cast of vegetables separately until crisp-tender. —Brian Hill, West Hollywood, California

Ingredients

  • 6 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, sliced
  • 2 medium sweet yellow peppers, sliced
  • 1 large red onion, halved and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 cups baby portobello mushrooms, halved
  • 2 cups cut fresh asparagus (1-inch pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh tarragon or 2 teaspoons dried tarragon

Directions

  1. Place salmon in a 13x9-in. baking dish; add lemon and lime juices. Sprinkle with seafood seasoning and salt. Bake, uncovered, at 425° until fish flakes easily with a fork, 10-15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet coated with cooking spray, saute peppers and onion in oil for 3 minutes. Add the corn, mushrooms and asparagus; cook and stir just until vegetables reach desired doneness, 3-4 minutes longer. Stir in tarragon. Serve with salmon.
