Fish and asparagus are two of my favorites, and this combination of ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil can’t be beat. This is a perfect healthy weeknight idea, and it’s ready in under 30 minutes.
Asian Flounder with Sesame Asparagus

1 tbsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted
1. Combine brown sugar and ginger in a small bowl; set aside.
2. Place fish on lightly greased baking sheet. Rub brown sugar mixture over fish. Combine soy sauce and Dijon mustard; brush over fish.
3. Place asparagus on a separate lightly greased baking sheet. Drizzle with sesame oil, tossing well.
3. Bake fish and asparagus at 400F for 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and asparagus is tender. Serve fish with asparagus and top with sesame seeds.
