Season the salmon fillet with salt and pepper. Rinse the shirataki noodles under cold water and set aside. Mince the garlic, chop the parsley, and zest the lemon.

In a skillet over medium heat, melt half of the butter. Add the seasoned salmon fillet and cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from the skillet and flake the salmon into bite-sized pieces.

In the same skillet, add the remaining butter and minced garlic. Cook until fragrant. Pour in the heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and lemon zest. Stir well and simmer for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.

Add the asparagus pieces to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly tender. Then add the shirataki noodles and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat through.

Add the flaked salmon back to the skillet with the Alfredo sauce and vegetables. Stir gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot, garnished with chopped parsley.
