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 holiday 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, asparagus and lemon halves are roasted on a sheet pan all at the same time.

Salmon Dinner for 2

Roasted Salmon with Asparagus for 2
  • Two 6 ounce portions of salmon, skin on - I remove after roasting while plating
  • 1 lemon cut in half, plus cut a slice from each pointed end to stand on sheet pan
  • 8 to 10 asparagus spears - use vegetable peeler to remove tough coating up to tips
  • Prepared bottled Asian stir fry sauce - I use House of Tsang Classic Sauce for lots of things, or just use soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and black pepper
  • Wasabi sauce - you can buy this ready made in the mustard/mayo or Asian section of supermarkets
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a sheet pan with vegetable cooking spray and arrange salmon portions skin side down, also the lemon halves and the asparagus.
  3. Very lightly brush salmon with prepared Asian seasoning sauce. Drizzle asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast until salmon separates into wide flakes when lightly pressed with back of spoon, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Plate salmon with asparagus and wasabi sauce. Instruct your guests that they are to squeeze the warm roasted lemon over the salmon.
