In the Kitchen: Perfect Seasoned Salmon with Green Beans and Asparagus Saute

On my last trip to the Spice House in Chicago I found this great blend of spices called Salmon Seasoning. This blend of spices marries together lemon peel, rosemary, garlic, and cayenne pepper to name just a few. I highly recommend using this to grill or bake salmon or tilapia. I have made it for many of our family and friends and even prepared it for people who do not like fish and they loved it!!! I prepared it with a fabulous sauteed fresh cut green beans and asparagus recipe that Raeganne shared with me.

Ingredients

 4 tbsp. Olive oil (I used rosemary infused olive oil for the fish and regular for the greens)
 2 tbsp. Salmon Seasoning from The Spice House
 4 filets of wild caught Salmon thawed 
 Sea Salt to taste
 1 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
 1 lb. fresh cut green beans (trimmed and rough chopped)
 1 lb. fresh asparagus (rough chopped)
 1 lemon (juice and zest)


 Instructions

  1. Lay two foot long pieces tin foil over each other in opposite directions. Spray foil with olive oil spray. Repeat for a second foil pack.
  2. Lay two filets in each foil pack. Drizzle all four filets with 3 tbsp. of olive oil and season with a bit of sea salt and the 2 tbsp. of salmon seasoning. 
  3. Fold foil over filets to cover loosely. Once you have a hot grill place filet packs to the side so as to not be on the direct heat for 9 minutes. 
  4. Remove salmons packs and let set covered while preparing greens.
  5. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add cut green beans and asparagus to the pan. Seasoning with sea salt and the garlic powder.
  6. Allow the greens to become charred a bit on each side. Cooking for about 5 minutes on each side. 
  7. Once the greens are almost done add the zest of one lemon and stir. Remove from the heat and add the juice from that lemon and stir. 
  8. Serve immediately, and enjoy these fresh flavors! 




We like to enjoy this meal on our patio when the weather is nice and warm. This meal is perfect for this time of year. I hope you enjoy making this fresh and healthy meal at your home!
