Asparagus with Shallots and Pancetta

This is a tasty and easy way to enjoy spring asparagus! I served it with broiled salmon and scallions.

4 shallots, sliced thin
4 oz cubed pancetta
Salt and pepper
1 lb asparagus, sliced thin

In a large skillet cook pancetta and shallots over medium high heat until they start to get crispy. Add asparagus and cook for 10 minutes until cooked crispy, stirring frequently. 

Serves 4.


Broiled Salmon with Green Onions

This is adapted from Bon Appetit. The salmon is moist and soft on the inside, crispy on the outside and oh so yummy! I served it with Asparagus with Pancetta and Shallots.

3 green garlic or cloves, spiced thin
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1 lb center cut salmon with skin on
1 bunch of scallions
Salt and pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, sliced thin

Combine first 6 Ingredinets. Pour 1/2 in a ziplock bag, add salmon and let marinade overnight. 

Preheat broiler to high.

Toss green onions with a little vegetable oil and salt. Lay on a baking sheet and broil until they start to brown. Top with salmon, drizzle with the marinade and 1/2 of the remaining marinade, top with sliced jalapeƱos. Broil until salmon is charred, 4 – 7 minutes. 

Serves 4.
