Salmon is very simple to cook, moist and easy to eat for those who have had bariatric surgery. It is also a beautiful plate for a sit down meal. While I have labeled this as Salmon for 2, its just as easy to make this meal for 4 or 8 or even 20 as the salmon portions and lemon halves are roasted on a sheet pan in a screaming hot broiler.
Roasted Salmon with Asparagus for 2
Author: Susan Maria Leach, Before & After
- Two 6 ounce portions of salmon, skin on - I remove after roasting while plating
- 1 lemon
- Prepared bottled Asian stir fry sauce - I use House of Tsang Classic Sauce for lots of things
- Sea Salt
- 10 asparagus spears - use vegetable peeler to remove tough coating up to tips
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Wasabi sauce - you can buy this ready made in the mustard/mayo or Asian section of supermarkets
- Preheat broiler to 500 degrees.
- Spray a sheet pan with vegetable cooking spray and arrange salmon portion with at least one inch of space.
- Cut a slice from rounded bottom of each lemon half so it will stand up on sheet pan - arrange on pan with salmon. Very lightly brush with prepared Asian seasoning sauce. Season with salt.
- Broil 10 to 12 minutes, until salmon separates into wide flakes when lightly pressed with back of spoon.
- Sauté asparagus in olive oil in a large skillet or pan, 4 to 6 minutes until tender. Season with salt and pepper.
- Plate salmon with asparagus and wasabi sauce. Instruct your guests that they are to squeeze the warm roasted lemon over the salmon.
