I had a delicious chicken dish at a friend's home and decided then and there to make it. When I was making salmon, last night, I thought about doing something similar with the fish. In looking for a recipe with salmon and caramelized onions, I found this recipe, which is probably the best salmon, I have made. The spices worked well together and the sweetness of the onions was icing on the cake.
|Spicy Salmon with Caramelized Onions (allrecipes)|
1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons minced
Combine the black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, onion powder, and salt in a small bowl. Stir in 1 tablespoon of olive oil to make a paste.
Spread the paste all over the salmon fillets, and set aside to marinate at room temperature 30 minutes.
Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small pan over medium heat.
Stir in the onion, and cook until tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes.
Push onions to side and put salmon in pan.
Cook the salmon fillets in the hot skillet until golden brown on each side, and no longer translucent in the center, about 6 minutes per side.
Pour the browned onions and olive oil over the salmon fillets to serve.
Eat and enjoy.
