Foodie Friday - Spring Fling

One of our favorite Spring vegetables is asparagus, and perhaps the way we like it best is in a stir fry with carrots, fresh ginger and a dash of soy sauce. Paired with teriyaki glazed Salmon and a wild rice medley, courtesy of Uncle Ben, it's a meal that can be on your plate in about 30 minutes.
It's the perfect, easy meal to prepare after a day spent working in the garden.

  1. Nancy Jane, this looks delicious. We love salmon and the way you've served it is much like I do. Hmmm, I have some fresh asparagus...rice...all I need is the salmon!

  2. We love salmon and of course, asparagus -- I've never done it with carrots but perhaps next time. We most often roast ours. Easy to do while we finish up the pre dinner martini!

  3. First I am going to Martha's for the pre dinner martini and then I will be over for the beautiful and extremely healthy salmon dinner at your place. I live in the Vancouver, B.C. area so salmon is often for dinner here.
    Thanks for having me over.

  4. Happy Foodie Friday to you, Nacy Jane!

    This is my first Foodie Friday and thank you for sharing your lovely Spring menu.

I know what's for dinner tonight at our house! Thanks Nancy Jane, you have such a lovely blog. Your flowers are jumping right out at me through the screen. Have a wonderful weekend.


  7. Your spring dinner looks wonderful! Salmon is probably my favorite fish. Is that a little wasabi on the side? Very pretty.

  10. Hi Nancy,
    Thanks for the tip about a future inexpensive coffee pot. I too have tried a couple of the more expensive models and the cheapy Mr. Coffee has lasted longer and the coffee has been equally as good.
    Why is it I don't take the same advice that I give my kids....spending more doesn't always make it better.....

    Have a great weekend!
