Grilled Salmon with Onion Marmalade over Greens
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
2 medium red onions, thinly sliced
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing the salmon
1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 salmon fillets (4-6 ounces each)
8 cups arugula
juice of 1/2 lemon plus 1 lemon cut into 4 wedges
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Prepare the grill or use a grill pan. In a bowl mix the onions, olive oil, vinegar, and slat and pepper. Place the onions in the middle of a large piece of foil; crimp it closed and place it on the grill or grill pan. Grill for about 10 minutes, until the onions are soft, shaking the foil from time to time.
Cut each salmon fillet into 2 or 3 strips, brush with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place each strip on the grill or grill pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Let cool. Arrange the salmon on top of the arugula and drizzle with lemon juice. Combine the chopped parsley with the onions and place a spoonful on top of each salad. Serve with a lemon wedge.
