Grilled salmon and asparagus, or is it asparagi?
December 7, 2016
Here comes another Salmon Week! I know. It seems we just can’t get enough. When it’s cold outside, I’d rather be lounging around doing next to nothing (really?) than clanking pots in the kitchen. That’s when the idea of grilled salmon and asparagus saved the day. Those two go so well together – what can I say?
One weekend, I happened to snag a bunch of asparagus. Wait a minute, what’s the plural of asparagus? Is it asparagi? Big lol. Anyhoo, I snagged them because they were pathetically skinny and all the ones I’ve been seeing so far are the fatter, thicker variety.
Well okay, I may like my asparagus pathetically skinny but that’s not how I like my salmon fillet. I’m a pig when it comes to salmon aka I want to eat a lot of it. I’m not happy to be just nibbling little bits off a small cut of fillet like a cat. That’s why I love these big slabs of salmon fillets. (Wait, wait, wait, aren’t there too many animals in this paragraph? argh!!)
This grilled salmon with dill and lemon is quite an interesting twist from how I usually do this but since I have plenty of dill and lemons, why not? Together with the asparagus, this was one delicious dinner that warmed up the house and our tummies.
