Yes, I know my last recipe, yummy Baked Grouper with Tomatoes and Artichokes was also a fish dish. But this Easy Pan Seared Salmon with Asparagus is so simple to prepare and so flavorful, I knew you would want it in your arsenal of quick and easy summer recipes. Oh, and did I mention it’s also low in calories! It’s the perfect meal!
Because of the amazing omega-3 benefits of salmon, it’s listed as one of the world’s most heart-healthy foods. Salmon contains almost 60% percent of the daily required intake of protein plus essential amino acids that promote growth and help maintain muscle tissue mass. And if that isn’t enough, salmon also provides essential vitamins for a healthy lifestyle. Of course, asparagus isn’t any shrinking violet in the nutrition department; this bright green vegetable is loaded with vitamins and minerals too!

All are quick, easy, and delicious and all are equally perfect for a weeknight dinner or for when you have guests.
