Salmon and asparagus go together like spaghetti and meatballs.

You can find them paired in pasta dishes, salads, or simply plated side-by-side for dinner.

Here, we put them together in a delicious omelet, with salty feta and herbs for flavor. It’s a delicious, protein-rich meal that works as a super energizing breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.

And if you’re omelet-flipping skills leave a little something to be desired, don’t fret. Just call it a scramble and enjoy.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Eggs are an incredible, edible source of protein and an important compound called choline, which is important for learning and memory. And salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are also great for the brain: they’re linked to decreased risk of depression and sharper cognition. In other words, eat this delicious breakfast for lasting brain power.
