SALMON WITH LEMON SAUCE, RICE AND ASPARAGUS
MMMMMMMMMMMMM!...This is a one of my all-time favourites. Salmon is one of the best protein foods, in my opinion. For a twist you can try substituting broccoli and cauliflower for asparagus.
8oz - Salmon filet
6 – Stalks of asparagus
½ cup white or brown rice
½ pinches of shallot, chopped
1 tbsp – lemon zest
1 tbsp – lemon juice
½ sup – fish broth
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil, olive oil spray

Preheat the oven to 400F
Spray a baking sheet with olive oil
Place the Salmon filet on the sheet and into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes
Cook the rice. If you’re using brown rice, then you will have to cook it 20 minutes before you start cooking the salmon.
About 5 minutes before the rice and salmon are finished, cook the asparagus. Also at this time, heat olive oil in a sauté pan. Add the shallot and sauté until golden.
Add lemon juice, lemon zest and fish broth.
Place salmon, rice and asparagus on a plate and drizzle lemon sauce over the top.
Don't Rush the Beat!
