Steamed to achieve optimum taste in about 15 minutes, this healthy and nutritious salmon and asparagus dish is a fast and easy dinner with very little clean up. Ideally served with whole grain rice or couscous and a touch of lemon juice. Be careful when opening the foil packs, since the steam will be very hot.
