Steamed Salmon and Asparagus with Mustard Dill Sauce

The tangy mustard dill sauce is a great complement to both the salmon and asparagus in this Healthiest Way of Eating recipe. It also provides you with excellent sources of health-promoting omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin K, niacin, selenium, protein and tryptophan.

Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes



  1. Bring 2 inches of lightly salted water to a boil in a steamer with a tight fitting lid.
  2. 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 one minute. While blender is running, drizzle olive oil in a little at a time. Set aside.
  3. Snap off tough asparagus ends. 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.
  4. Rub salmon with 1 TBS lemon juice and season with a little salt and pepper.
  5. Place salmon in the same steamer basket and steam until pink inside, about 3-4 minutes. Place salmon on a plate and pour desired amount of sauce over it and the asparagus.
