Nutritional values

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids that benefit the heart, while the asparagus provides plenty of minerals such as folate and fiber.

You can use green asparagus instead of white asparagus if you want more flavor. Sorrel, which is not always available, can easily be replaced by arugula.
