Simple Soy Salmon and Wrapped Asparagus

And then there are the days the preference is to keep it simple.

I do try to keep frozen salmon filets in the freezer for just such occasions – no time to be creative or plan. Truth be known, I had ate a late lunch out and was not hungry myself so this dinner was prepared for one - #1 fan of my cooking!

The entrée: Salmon in Soy and Brown Sugar. This is a very simple and easy marinade. Soy sauce and brown sugar are combined and brushed on the salmon. A small amount is set aside to drizzle on the finished salmon before serving. The samlmon was cooked on a grill pan on the stove top.

Side: Steamed Asparagus wrapped in Roasted Red Pepper. I typically roast red peppers weekly so that they are available for a lunch time wrap or to “adorn” other vegetables.The asparagus was steamed and then wrapped with a slice of red bell pepper.

Crusty bread was served with an evoo, basil and garlic dip. I continue to use and recommend Lucini Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( for all dressings and dips.

The combination of colors on the dark plate made an otherwise simple dish attractive, and “tasty,” according to the grateful diner.
