Lemon Sauce Pasta and Salmon

Lemon Sauce Pasta and Salmon

30 minute meal - Preheat oven 425

Boil two large pots of water:
One for steamed veg (asparagus pairs well with this meal!)
One for pasta

Prep salmon by sprinkling lemon pepper, fresh lemon thyme, parsley, and the juice of half of a lemon over salmon. Stick salmon into oven once preheated.

After ten minutes, pour pasta into boiling pot. Add some fresh scallions.

Put bottoms of Asparagus into steam pot.

After an additional five minutes, stick tops of asparagus into the steam pot.

Start making sauce. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter down with the remainder of the herbs and other half of the lemon (see picture for reference). I also added a teaspoon of coconut oil - told you I'd be sneaking it in when possible! After three minutes simmering, add 2 tablespoons of flour. After this blends, add a cup of milk and let boil for a minute. Stir continuously.

Turn off pasta, drain, rinse and return to pot. Add sauce mixture.

Next take asparagus off heat and pull out salmon.

Take sauce pot and put straight into sink with water - so it'll be easier to clean once your meal is over!

An "A" from Dad and a "4.0" from Mom. Yum :)
