      Title: Salmon with asparagus sauce
 Categories: Seafood, Masterchefs, Frisco, Relf
      Yield: 4 Servings
  1 1/2 lb Asparagus, medium/small
      2 oz Butter, unsalted
      2 c  Cream, heavy
           Salt (to taste)
           Pepper (to taste)

      8 ea Salmon, steaks, 3/4-inch
           -- thick, boned
      2 oz Butter
  For the Sauce: ==============
       Wash the asparagus and snap off the white ends.  Set aside all
  tops and half that number of ends.  Plunge the tops into a large pot
  of salted, boiling water and cook until limp but not for too long.
  (Note: Cook slightly longer than for eating.  If undercooked, they
  will not process well; if overcooked, they will taste earthy.)
       Drain the asparagus thoroughly and, while still hot, run it
  through food processor with unsalted butter for 3 - 4 minutes until
  smooth, scraping down the sides of the processor frequently.
       Meanwhile, chop asparagus ends to remove the dry hard field cuts
  and simmer with cream.  Cook the ends slowly for 20 minutes, then
  strain, pressing through gently.  Just before serving, combine
  asparagus, butter and cream.  Heat slowly to just below boiling
  point. Adjust the seasonings to taste.
  To Assemble: ============
       Salt and pepper the salmon steaks.  Melt the butter in a heavy
  enamel or copper saute pan.  When the butter begins to brown, add
  salmon and cook one side for 30 seconds.
       Remove the pan from heat, turn the salmon carefully, and let
  cook in the hot pan off of the heat for 30 seconds.  Salmon will
  still be quite rare.  If you like your fish done more, add to the
  cooking time slightly. Don't overcook!  The salmon loses a lot of
  flavor when overcooked.
       Place the salmon on a towel (cloth or paper) to drain.
       Just before you finish cooking the salmon, spoon some of the
  sauce onto heated plates; then place the cooked drained salmon on top
  of the sauce and serve immediately.
       Preparation time:  1 hour
