What you will need:
4 Salmon fillets cut about 2 inches thick
2 bunches of Asparagus
Marinade for Fish:
1/2 cup of Spicy Mustard (Guldens is fine)
1 Lemon squeezed (no seeds)
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 springs of parsley
2 garlic cloves
1/4 onion powder
Marinade for Asparagus
1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
1 cup of Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup of Sun dried tomatoes finely chopped
This dish will serve 4.
Wine Recommendation: Duckhorn Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc ($28.00)
Preparation Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes (only because you are marinating the fish & asparagus)
Start chopping your garlic. In a small bowl start whisking in all of your marinade ingredients. The marinade should be a good balance of watery yet thick enough texture to bond with the fish. Place your salmon fillets in a large bowl or square Tupperware container. Now pour your marinade over the salmon. Let sit for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
For your asparagus, cut the ends not the tips of the asparagus off. Wash/Rinse/Dry. In a large Tupperware container add in all of your marinade ingredients. Place in the refrigerator for one hour.
Ok, let's get cooking:
Turn your grill heat on High to sear the salmon and grill the asparagus. After about 5 minutes you can turn your salmon and cook on the other side for another 5 minutes. Then turn your grill heat to medium cover the grill for 5 minutes and all is complete!
Tip - for an extra kick, place dollops of spicy mustard on the sides of the platter you serve the fish on, your guests may enjoy that extra spice!
