Salmon and Asparagus With Coconut Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by BakinBaby

This sauce is not curry based, but has a hint of ginger and coconut, topped with asparagus and carrots. It comes from Women's Day. Dh loves this recipe and we both find the sweet coconut milk mixed with the ginger is delightful.

Nothing better for a weekday meal than a 30 minute or less meal in one pot! (Okay, so we do a little steaming of the veggies first in the microwave, but no biggie, still easy clean up). :)
I kept to the recipe as stated, but only had green parts of the onions on hand so I doubled the amount for flavor.
