Cod Fillets with Dijon, Asparagus & Bacon

I found these beautiful cod fillets and bought them with no idea how I would prepare them. One night, tired from work but hungry, it came to me! There is some asparagus and a few slices of bacon in the refrigerator. I can prep it fast and get chores done while it cooks. Then make a salad, pop the cork on some wine, put on some soft music and relax with a deliciously light meal. Ah, day is done.
