Asparagus and Salmon Stir Fry

Ok, I know, I know, you are probably getting sick of all the asparagus recipes. Trust me, there will be an end. Soon. Maybe? Ok I can't guarantee it will be anytime soon, but it will be soon. Ish.

On another note, you should try this stir fry. It was UH-mazing! Salmon and asparagus are just natural winners together, but to make them into a stir fry is heaven! Well, at least as heavenly as a stir fry can get. It ain't no chocolate cake, you feel me? Mmmm... cake....

Ok enough of the cake talk. Onto the stir fry! The sauce is based off of my favorite pot sticker dipping sauce, with some hoisin sauce and garlic added in. The salmon is stir fried quickly, followed by the asparagus, snow peas and diced red bell pepper. The sauce is stirred in and voila! An easy, one-pan meal in minutes.
