Salmon is wonderful, salmon on the grill is fantastic and salmon with roasted asparagus is gourmet. This is an easy, elegant, palate pleasing plate. The salmon is marinated and basted in lemon, honey and butter. The same mixture, heated, serves as the accompanying sauce. The asparagus are simply roasted with salt, pepper and olive oil.
Lemon Honey Salmon
