Transfer the marinated salmon to the casserole dish with the asparagus and pour the rest of the marinade over everything.
Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
While salmon is baking, whisk together the ingredients for the glaze in the same bowl or measuring cup you used for the marinade.
