ingredients for the honey mustard asparagus and salmon recipe

  • Salmon.

    A superhero when it comes to nutrition. Salmon is rich in Selenium, phosphorus, Vitamin Bs, protein, and healthy fats, to count a few. It also contains astaxanthin, an antioxidant with powerful health benefits. It may help the brain, heart, skin, and nervous health
  • Asparagus.

    We will need green asparagus for this recipe. The low in calorie vegetable is a fantastic source of antioxidants, Vitamins A, C, E, and K, Potassium, fiber, and folate. I love green asparagus because they are easier to cook than white ones.
  • Potatoes.

    You can use any potato you like. I prefer baby potatoes for this recipe.
  • Mustard.

    You will need mustard for the sauce. You can use Dijon mustard or any mustard you have at home.
  • Honey.

    Together with mustard honey is the perfect combo. The honey sweetens the sauce. But don't worry, it won't taste too sweet; it will have the ideal amount and will not dominate as it harmonizes perfectly with the other ingredients.
  • Dill.

    The weed gives the dish not only a fresh taste but it is also highly nutritious. Dill contains a good amount of fiber, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Potassium, Sodium, and Vitamin C. In traditional Chinese medicine, dill was/ is used to treat many health issues, including kidney diseases, fever, cold, cough, and bronchitis, to name a few.
  • Chives.

    Another weed with a powerful profile. Chives are a good source of folate, choline, and Vitamins A, C, and K.
  • Basil leaves.

    The basil leaves harmonize perfectly with the other herbs.
  • Garlic cloves.

    The garlic cloves will give so much flavor to the dish, but it won't dominate.
  • Heavy cream.

    The heavy cream will round up the sauce perfectly. I use 30 % fat heavy cream.
  • Spices.

    We won't use many spices as we won't need them. But don't worry; the dish will taste flavorful because of our fresh ingredients.
  • Butter.

    Just a little bit of butter to fry the Salmon in it- it's the perfect source of fat/ oil because it fits perfectly to the dish.

instruction for the perfect honey mustard salmon recipe with asparagus

  1. What you will need before cooking - You will need a board to cut the ingredients, a sharp knife, a spatula, a whisk, a tablespoon, a teaspoon plate for the fish, a small bowl for the garlic, a small bowl for the herbs, a bowl or big measuring cup to mix the sauce, a big pot for the potatoes, a pan (30cm / 12inches).
  2. If you are using potatoes as a side dish, this is the time to wash them under rinsing water. Then add them to a big pot filled with water. The potatoes should be completely covered with water. Add some salt and cook on medium-high level on the stove until the potatoes are soft.
  3. Wash the asparagus dill, chives, and basil leaves under rinsing water. The Salmon with lemon and water, and if needed, remove the skin from the Salmon and cut it into four pieces. Dry the Salmon with a paper towel.
  4. Peel the garlic cloves and mince them. We want the garlic to be very thin as it should set all its aroma free. If you don't want to chop it, use a garlic press.
  5. Remove the ends of the asparagus by cutting 2cm (1 inch) off. Then cut the rest of the asparagus into four pieces so you have smaller asparagus pieces. Put them aside.
  6. Chop the dill and chives, and basil leaves (optional) into tiny pieces. Remember, you don't want big chunks of weed in your sauce.
  7. Into a measuring cup or bowl, mix mustard, honey, water, dill, chives, basil leaves, spices, and heavy cream and whisk until well combined.
  8. Now to the cooking. Put a pan on medium-high level on the stove and add one tablespoon of butter to the pan.
  9. Add the salmon pieces to the pan when the butter is melted and hot. Sprinkle some salt on top of the Salmon and fry for about one minute.
  10. Add the chopped garlic and turn the salmon upside down. Fry for another minute, remove the Salmon from the pan, and set aside until it's later needed.
  11. Immediately add the asparagus to the same pan and fry for about 2 minutes. Then pour the mixed sauce over it and add the Salmon.
  12. Set the stove on medium heat and cook for about 20 minutes or until the asparagus is soft.
  13. Remove the pan from the stove and add the cooked potatoes, or serve with whatever side dish you like.
