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.

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.
