Grilled Salmon Steak with Mustard Sauce and Asparagus

From Everyday Food

serves 4


1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for grates
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons white-wine vinegar
3 pounds medium-thick asparagus, trimmed
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 salmon steaks (6 to 8 ounces each)
4 slices grilled bread (optional)


1. Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Make mustard sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, sugar, and vinegar. Divide sauce between two bowls (about 1/2 cup each); use one for basting and the other for drizzling. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, toss asparagus with oil; season with salt and pepper. Working in batches, if necessary, grill asparagus, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and tender, 4 to 8 minutes, depending on thickness of spears. Set aside.

3. Arrange salmon steaks on a baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. With a brush, baste each side lightly with some of the mustard sauce. Grill salmon steaks, basting with sauce again, until glazed and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

4. Transfer salmon to plates; drizzle with mustard sauce. Serve with half the asparagus and, if desired, grilled bread.
