  • Bring lightly salted water to a boil in a steamer with a tight fitting lid.

  • While water is coming to a boil, put all sauce ingredients except olive oil in a blender and begin to blend on high speed for about a minute.

  • Rub salmon with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

  • Cut ends off asparagus.

  • When water is at a full boil place asparagus in steamer basket, cover, and cook until asparagus is tender, about 3-5 minutes, depending on thickness. Remove from steamer, toss with 1 TBS lemon juice, 1 TBS olive oil, salt and pepper.

  • Rub salmon with 1 TBS lemon juice and season with a little salt and pepper.

  • Place salmon in the same steamer basket and steam until pink inside, about 3-4 minutes.
