  • 1 bunch Fresh asparagus washed, trimmed, cut 1/2-inch diagonal pcs
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 dash salt to taste
  • 4 whole atlantic salmon filets 3/4 " thick
  • 1 tsp sesame oil optional
  • 1 whole Lemon cut into wedges


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the asparagus, and blanch for 1 minute. Drain and set aside.
  • Put 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over a medium-high heat. (I find a nonstick pan is foolproof.) Salt the salmon and sauté in the butter for about 2 - 3 minutes; turn and cook another 2 - 3 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Remove the fish to a dish and keep warm.
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and the optional sesame oil to the skillet, reduce the heat to medium, and add the asparagus. Cook for about 3 - 4 minutes, until crisp-tender. Serve the salmon and asparagus with the lemon wedges.
