Salmon with asparagus and wasabi butter

The salmon and asparagus get along very well and there is a very tasty recipe. The special thing is the wasabi butter, because it still gives the finishing touch.


  1. For the wasabi butter: mix butter, wasabi paste, pressed garlic clove, salt, pepper and finely chopped herbs and refrigerate.
  2. Boil a pot with water and a little salt. Add asparagus to the pot and cook for a few minutes. Drain the boiling water and keep the asparagus warm.
  3. Heat the oil in a large pan until it is well heated. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of the fish before placing the fillets in a frying pan. First fry on the skin side for about 3-4 minutes, then turn the fish and fry on the other side for just as long.
  4. Add small flakes to the hot fish fillets with half of the butter.
  5. Add asparagus to the fish, add a little more wasabi butter to the pan and turn the asparagus a little.
  6. Sprinkle with a little lemon juice and grated lemon zest.
