Directions
  1. Chop off tough ends of asparagus spears; discard. Steam asparagus for 3–5 minutes, until crisp-tender. Cool on a towel-lined baking sheet.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt. Pour half the sauce in a line across the middle of a serving platter large enough to fit asparagus spears snugly. Reserve remaining sauce.
  3. Wrap a piece of salmon around middle of each asparagus spear. Arrange spears side-by-side on serving plate, perpendicular to sauce. Cover and chill 30 minutes. Spoon remaining sauce over asparagus. Sprinkle with capers and freshly ground black pepper to taste
