Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. (If you are planning on broiling the bundles, then put about 8-10 toothpicks in a bowl of water to soak)
Snap the ends off of the asparagus spears. Toss with oil, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Put on baking sheet. Cut bell pepper in half and take out ribs & seeds. Put on baking sheet with asparagus.
Transfer to preheated oven and roast for 10 minutes. Stir, then roast another 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
Slice bell pepper. Group the asparagus into about 3-4 spears and add a few bell pepper slices with the asparagus spears. Turn oven to broil.
Wrap the bundles with a piece of smoked salmon. Secure with a toothpick* if desired. Put on baking sheet and repeat with remaining salmon & asparagus/bell pepper. Put in oven to broil for 2-3 minutes, or just serve as is. Enjoy!
*If you are broiling the bundles, be sure to soak the toothpicks in water for at least 20 minutes before using them.
