grilled salmon and asparagus with horseradish sauce

mood: lethargic
listening to: dj krush :: transitions/四極 (japan extra track 2)

after months and months of dancing around it, i finally mustered up the courage to cook some salmon. it's been a long time coming and it was mostly due to the fact that i couldn't think of anything that i wanted to make with it. i wasn't enthused about just laying a salmon fillet on top of buttered rice or anything like that, but recipe intrigued me, mostly because of the sauce that accompanies the salmon. i added in some grilled asparagus for some added variety. i think you'll enjoy this one.

3 salmon fillets
non stick vegetable spray
3 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp white horseradish
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
lemon juice

Horseradish Sauce:
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp white horseradish
