Sweet Onion Salmon

Recipe for Grilled Salmon
How I love salmon! It is so versatile and can go into so many recipes from tacos, to pastas or just grill it up on the barbecue. This recipe takes sauteed sweet onions and grills them right on top of the fish to pack a tasty punch to your salmon. You're probably looking at the photo thinking "That's way too many onions" and I probably would too. However by using sweet onions over red or yellow, it takes on a whole new flavor and it's not "onion-y" at all.

Sweet Onion Grilled Salmon 

Ingredients - Serves 4
3 medium sized sweet onions, peeled
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup crisp light white wine
2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 Tablespoons sweet honey mustard
1/3 cup honey
Salt & pepper to taste
1.5 – 2 pound salmon fillet (I used half of the large fresh salmon from Costco) 

Slice the onions into rings on a mandolin set to thin cut. If you don’t have a mandolin, slice as thin as you can with a regular knife.
In a deep saucepan, heat the oil. Add the butter and garlic. Add the wine and cook the onions down until they are translucent. Add the brown sugar, mustard and honey and stir until blended. Salt and Pepper to taste. Turn to low heat and simmer about 15 minutes.
Rinse and pat dry the salmon fillet and place it on a large piece of foil. Salt and pepper the top to taste. Add about ½ of the onion mix to the top of the salmon and pour the ¼ cup of the liquid from the skillet around the fillet.

Seal in foil and cook on the grill over medium heat 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. Use the excess onion mix as additional garnish for your fish.
This meal was served to company (hubby’s co worker) and I’m always a little nervous trying a new recipe idea when I have people over. I would rather taste test it myself to make sure it’s truly what I intended it to be, but no worries here. This fish dish was well received and it was all gone by the end of the meal.
