Yes, I know my last recipe, yummy Baked Grouper with Tomatoes and Artichokes was also a fish dish. But this Easy Pan Seared Salmon with Asparagus is so simple to prepare and so flavorful, I knew you would want it in your arsenal of quick and easy summer recipes. Oh, and did I mention it’s also low in calories! It’s the perfect meal!

Because of the amazing omega-3 benefits of salmon, it’s listed as one of the world’s most heart-healthy foods. Salmon contains almost 60% percent of the daily required intake of protein plus essential amino acids that promote growth and help maintain muscle tissue mass. And if that isn’t enough, salmon also provides essential vitamins for a healthy lifestyle. Of course, asparagus isn’t any shrinking violet in the nutrition department; this bright green vegetable is loaded with vitamins and minerals too!

To prepare Easy Pan Seared Salmon with Asparagus, gather your ingredients and add one tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat.

While the pan is heating, remove any skin from the salmon and dry the fillets with a paper towel. (This helps ensure they get a good sear.) Season the fillets on both sides with salt and pepper.

When the pan is hot, add the fillets and cook for approximately 4-5 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy on the first side. Use a pancake turner and carefully flip the fillets over. Reduce the heat to medium and, depending on the thickness of the fillets, cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Check the fillets every minute or so by piercing it with a fork until the thickest part flakes through the entire thickness.

Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the fillets to a serving platter. Cover loosely with foil or a pan lid to keep warm.

Use a paper towel and carefully wipe out the pan. Add one tablespoon butter to the pan and when it is melted, add the asparagus in a single layer. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

Cover and cook the asparagus on medium for about 5 minutes or until they are bright green and just starting to get tender. Uncover and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook the spears, occasionally turning, for another 2-3 minutes or until they are crisp-tender.

While the asparagus is cooking, add three tablespoons of oil, lemon juice, shallots, basil, mustard and a pinch of salt and pepper to a small mason jar and shake well.

Add the asparagus to the platter with the fish, drizzle the dressing on the fish and serve immediately.

*To trim your asparagus, simply bend it to snap off the tough woody end where it meets the tender stalk.

Hey Jan! I love both grilled fish and pan seared fish, but pan searing only takes a few minutes versus grilling which for us takes at least 30 minutes to even get our green egg grill ready to grill. So for me, it’s just a time thing, plus it is so hot right now it’s not enjoyable to be outside. Hope you and Bennet are doing well and I think of you guys often!

Great recipe! I made it tonight and it was easy and delicious! I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the herb sauce, but I loved it! Nothing about this recipe needs changed imo, it’s fantastic just the way it is! Thank you!

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?

Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.

You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.

Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.

Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.

Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.

Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
