Grilled Asparagus Wrapped in Smoked Salmon

– Grilled Asparagus Wrapped in Smoked Salmon –

These Grilled Asparagus Wrapped in Smoked Salmon are the perfect way to enjoy the flavors of Spring. Each spear of asparagus is grilled to perfection and then wrapped with slices of smoked salmon. The combination of flavors between these two ingredients is simply sublime. Fresh asparagus are one of my favorite ways to celebrate Spring, well that and the warmer weather and longer days too 🙂 . These Grilled Asparagus Wrapped in Smoked Salmon are easy to put together and make for the perfect appetizer. With one taste, this dish will become your go-to appetizer during these beautiful Spring days.

The Perfect Garlic Yogurt Dip

When I first made these Grilled Asparagus Wrapped in Smoked Salmon, I fell in love with them instantly, however, they needed something more, so I created a garlic yogurt dip to bring the entire dish together. This Garlic Yogurt Dip is super easy to make and packs a big flavor, plus hey, who doesn´t love a good dip! and seriously, it works so amazingly well with the asparagus.

    Fresh asparagus are one of our favorite things about Spring, too, Albert! And any chance I have to pull the grill out is always high on my list. So grilled asparagus is an excellent choice! But then wrapping it in smoked salmon? I’ve never tried that, but I can see how it would taste amazing. And that’s before you add in that dip. You’ve got my attention now. I need to try this recipe…and soon! 🙂

      The smoked salmon works really well with the grilled asparagus, and the dip takes into the next level, thanks for the comment David 🙂

    A beautiful combination: salmon, asparagus and yogurt, very similar to what I have planned to cook today: baked salmon and asparagus with wild garlic quark dip and potatoes. 🙂 I am getting hungry just thinking about it!
