Fried Salmon Steaks with Asparagus Garlic Lemon Pepper: Under €6 Meal

Yes, you read it right, €6 for 2 pax of pan-fried asparagus & salmon steaks. Affordable restaurant standard meal prepared at home in less than 30 minutes. That's the the beauty of home cook meal. The 2 pieces of marinated salmon steaks was sold for merely  € 4. I opted for the lemon-pepper-marinate flavor over the BBQ-marinate as the lemon-pepper salmon steak pairs better with asparagus.

The salmon steaks were packed in an aluminum container. You may just unseal the plastic cover on top, drizzle some olive oil and pop into the oven and bake for a 15-20 minutes. I prefer to pan-fry my salmon steaks instead. About 3-4 minutes for each side under medium heat with a tbsp of olive oil. Remember the skin side down first. The salmon steaks were well marinated and no extra seasoning is required.

Now, let's prepare the asparagus.
Ingredients: 500g asparagus (trimmed), 2 cloves of garlic (sliced), 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper.

Direction: Heat-up a tbsp of olive oil in the skillet and lightly brown the garlic slices. Add in the
asparagus and cook for 3 minutes. Sprinkle some salt and pepper, pan fry for another 2 minutes. Serve your salmon steak and pan fried garlic asparagus with boiled potatoes or rice. I prefer rice as they are more substantial than potatoes *wink*

Al dente asparagus, crispy salmon skin, moist and flaky salmon steak, the dish scored. I will definitely make it again. (By the way, the 500g asparagus just cost a mere €1.60)
