This week we bring you a recipe that’s a little bit more filling. Still with fantastic properties that will help you this summer to continue losing weight and take care of your skin.

This is because the main element, salmon, is an excellent choice for promoting weight loss, as it is rich in protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids can help regulate metabolism and promote fat burning. In addition, salmon is also rich in vitamin D, which plays a crucial role in skin health.

Also, asparagus is a low-calorie and high-fiber vegetable, which helps promote satiety and control appetite. They contain nutrients such as folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin E, which are beneficial for skin health and can improve its radiance.

The lemon yogurt sauce complements this recipe and adds freshness and flavor. Natural low-fat yogurt is an excellent source of protein, calcium and probiotics, which are great for the digestive system. Lemon, on the other hand, is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants that can contribute to more radiant skin.


  • 2 fresh salmon filets
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, with woody ends removed
