Recipe courtesy of Kristina Kuzmic
| December 17, 2011
Approximately 16 asparagus spears
Salt and pepper
3 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
4 (6 0z) Salmon fillets
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, chopped
1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese
For the Dressing:
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut and discard the hard ends of the asparagus spears.
Line a baking sheet with foil. Place asparagus on the baking sheet, toss with 1 Tablespoon olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Set aside.
Season both sides of salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
Heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add the salmon to the pan (top side down first) and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side (depending on desired doneness).
Transfer to a plate and cover with foil.
Place the dressing ingredients in a small container (with a lid), cover and shake until well combined.
Toss the mixed greens in the dressing (you won’t need all the dressing, so add a little at a time) and distribute among 4 plates.
Add asparagus, Kalamata olives, and gorgonzola to each plate, then top each plate with a salmon fillet.
Note: Keep the remaining dressing in the refrigerator and use within the week. This dressing also makes a good marinade for meats or vegetables.
