Steamed Salmon and Asparagus with Mustard Dill Sauce

The sauce is a great complement to both in this easy to prepare healthy meal.

Method

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.

While blender is running drizzle olive oil in a little at a time. Set aside.

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