Thrive's Healthy Recipe of the Month: Lemon Pepper Salmon with Roasted Asparagus

Dawn Muller

For our inaugural Healthy Recipe of the Month, Dr. Brandon is sharing one of his favorites --- actually, he's giving us two recipes this time, so we get a bonus!  

Salmon is an excellent source of several vitiamins and minerals - which can help "extend lifespan, avoid heart attacks and fight cancer" (Source: https://draxe.com/8-salmon-nutrition-facts-proven-health-benefits/ ).  Asparagus, also, is packed with vitamins, antioxidents, is a great source of fiber and is a natural diuretic. Let us know what you think ... Bon apetit! 

Lemon Pepper Salmon with Roasted Asparagus

Ingredients:
Filet Wild Salmon
2-3 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
Clove Garlic-Minced
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Slices of fresh lemon

Rinse and dry salmon filet and place on broiler rack lined with  aluminum foil(or something to bring it to the grill), rub salmon with lemons and garlic. Pour lemon juice over salmon and place in refrigerator 30-60 minutes, then broil on low until done.

 

Roasted Asparagus

Ingredients:
Fresh Asparagus with ends trimmed
Olive oil-just enough to coat
Clove or more of garlic minced
Rosemary to taste
Pinch of salt

Toss ingredients together and place in shallow baking/roasting pan.  Roast at 425 until asparaus is at your preferred crispness (but not all the way to where the color changes to the dull greenish brown).
