Cook 100g penne pasta in boiling salted water about 11 minutes until al a dente.
Whilst pasta is cooking season the salmon and then place the salmon fillet and asparagus spears into a steamer for about 8 minutes until cooked through.
Whilst the everthing is cooking grate half a lemon for its zest and squeeze the lemon for the juice. Measure out 2 tbsp of double cream and 1 tbsp of mild olive oil and weigh out the butter and parmesan. Chop up a bunch of parsely.
Once pasta is done drain the pasta and mix in with the pasta the lemon zest, lemon juice, double cream, oil, butter and parmesan and season to taste with salt and pepper. Then mix in the parsley.
