Asparagus and Lemon and Basil Ricotta Stuffed Salmon Rolls with Lemon Sauce

Asparagus and Lemon and Basil Ricotta Stuffed Salmon Rolls with Lemon Sauce

Looking for a new way to enjoy some spring/summer asparagus? How about this asparagus and lemon and basil ricotta stuffed salmon rolls with lemon sauce? I came across the idea for ricotta and asparagus trout rolls in the latest edition of the All You Need Is Cheese magazine and as soon as I saw it I knew that I would need to try it! I am always looking for tasty new ways to include fish in my meal plan and you really can’t go wrong stuffing some with plenty of cheese and asparagus! This recipe takes the ends of salmon (or trout) fillets, and stuffs them with a mixture of ricotta, fresh chopped basil and lemon zest along with the asparagus and the combination is simply brilliant; it just screams summer-y goodness! I added some parmesan cheese to the mix which is just packed with a mild flavour that brings everything home! The salmon rolls are served with a simple sauce with a base of broth and lemon juice and I added a touch of butter because the lemon butter flavour combo is so good! You can optionally (I highly recommend it!) serve these salmon rolls topped with a fresh asparagus and basil pesto and you could also serve them with a fresh basil marinara sauce. No matter how you serve these asparagus and lemon and basil ricotta stuffed salmon rolls with lemon sauce they are sure to be the talk of the dinner table this summer!
