    Mrs. Cavanar's Note:

    This is a very easy, and tasty dish to make for company or a simple dinner at home. The presentation is great for company! I made this for Mother's Day and it was a big hit! My Husband made some garlic mashed potatoes for a side dish, but it would also go good with rice as well.

      Great recipe. I actually took a shortcut and just put the sauce ingredients in the pan with the salmon and asparagus. I am not rating because I used green onions for shallots and lime for lemon, skipped the butter entirely, and also did not add the vinegar mainly since I was not having butter. In spite of all of that, it was still wonderful (hard not to be, with the flavors involved), and I think this is the best I've ever done with getting my asparagus to exactly the right level of crisp-tender. This was also very easy and quick to put together on a weeknight. I served it with salad and quinoa (which I did in the rice cooker), so it really was a lot of bang for my relatively minimal effort. Thanks.
