"An easy, elegant dinner that's fun to make. The salmon is delicately infused with the flavor of the vegetables. If you like your asparagus more al dente, just skip the pre-steaming step." — Cathy Trout

It was easy, healthy and very tasty. I won't steam asparagus as long next time. Easy clean up due to foil bags-
One of our favorite new recipes - especially now that we are eating healthy. My husband said this is the best meal I've ever made. (I don't know that I necessarily agree with him...but I do think it's delicious!) I did not make any adjustment to the recipe - except loosely wrapped in aluminum foil b/c I did not have a bag.
The salmon was a little bland - so I will use a seafood rub and possibly add garlic next time I make this. I also only blanched the asparagus for a minute instead of steaming for 5 - I prefer it al dente. So easy, and cooking in foil (parchment would have worked, too) made clean up a snap. I would also leave the spinach leaves whole next time - slicing them sort of lost them in the asparagus.
Love this easy, healthy recipe!! Made a few changes: didn't have asparagus or red onion, so I used white onion and I sliced some zucchini, red & green peppers and doubled the capers =) Very tasty! Thanks for sharing!
