Serves 2 | Prep time 15 mins | By Christine Barakat Abou Aoun

 INGREDIENTS 

• 1 cup brown noodles
• 140g asparagus, cut in thirds
• Cooking spray
• 150g salmon fillet, skin off, cut into 6 pieces
• 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
• Zest and juice of 1-2 limes (3 tbsp juice)
• ¼ tsp salt
• ¼ tsp fresh pepper
• 4 small cherry tomatoes
• ½ small avocado, cut into pieces

 PREPARATION 

1.

Cook the noodles in boiling water until soft (about 6 minutes). Transfer with tongs to a strainer.

2.

Add asparagus to same boiling water. Cook until al dente (about 2 minutes); rinse under cold water.

3.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat lightly with cooking spray. Cook the salmon until cooked through, turning pieces (about 2-3 minutes per side). Reserve.

4.

Make the vinaigrette: Whisk together sesame oil, lime zest and juice, and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Combine the noodles, asparagus, and vinaigrette in a medium bowl.

5.

Add the tomato and avocado; toss to coat. Just before serving, add salmon.

The salmon and avocado are loaded with healthy fats and the noodles and veggies are high in fiber. Asparagus provides a wide range of essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A and C, folate and iron.
