Mustardy Salmon with Roasted Lemon Garlic Asparagus

I love to cook and I love to cook new things and since I have been on a journey to better health and cleaner eating, I have discovered some new foods and some old foods that I had only eaten when my mom or other people had fixed them.  Two of these things are salmon and asparagus.  I loved when my mom grilled salmon for us when I was a kid and one of my favorite things she fixed was an italian dressing asparagus.  I decided to tackle these two items on my own last week and let me just say I think they turned out wonderfully!

Here are the recipes for you!

Roasted Lemon Garlic Asparagus

Ingredients:

3 TBSP extra virgin olive oil

½ tsp. sea salt

½ tsp. fresh ground pepper

2 TBSP finely chopped fresh garlic

¼ cup lemon juice

2 bunches of asparagus

2 tsps. grated lemon zest

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a mixing bowl mix garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and lemon zest, set aside.

Peel or cut the bottom of the asparagus off, getting rid of the tough outer layer. Lay the asparagus on a non-stick baking sheet with rimmed sides.

Pour lemon juice mixture over the asparagus.

Roast asparagus for about 15 minutes, until tender, shaking the pan halfway through.

Remove from oven & enjoy!

[Yields about 6 servings]

Mustardy Salmon

Ingredients:

4oz salmon filet

2 tsps. Dijon mustard

6 wheat thins, crushed

½ a lemon

ground pepper

 Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray down with cooking spray.

Squeeze half of the lemon over the salmon filet and let it marinate for 10-15 minutes.

Place the salmon on the middle of the baking sheet.

Grind some pepper onto the salmon, then spread mustard on top of the salmon and press the cracker crumbs into the mustard.

Bake for 15 minutes (if desired broil for 2 additional minutes to crisp up the cracker toppings).

Plate with some asparagus and you have a delicious dinner!
