The distinct flavor of salmon is well complemented by fresh dill and tart lemon juice.
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup fresh chopped dill
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Pinch of cayenne
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of black pepper
2 6-ounce salmon fillets
3/4 pound asparagus
1 tbsp avocado oil
1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. Mix the marinade ingredients in a blender
3. Place the salmon fillets, skin side up, in a glass baking dish, cover with the marinade, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
4. Bake for 5 minutes, turn the fillets over, and bake for 5 more minutes, skin side down. Test for doneness by seeing that the fish flakes easily and is opaque throughout.
5. Steam asparagus for 5-7 minutes. Drizzle avocado oil, or butter on top. Salt and pepper to taste.
