- 1 medium onion (thinly sliced)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (extra virgin — plus more for brushing the salmon)
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1 pound salmon fillet (cut into 4 pieces)
- 5 ounces fresh greens
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
In a medium bowl, combine the onions, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
Spoon the mixture onto a large piece of foil, then fold into a packet and seal tightly.
Place the foil packet on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until the onions are soft. Remove from the oven.
Preheat the broiler.
Place the salmon fillets on a broiler pan, skin-side down. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Broil the salmon fillets 5 to 6 inches from heat for 8 to 9 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Arrange the greens on 4 serving bowls or plates, then top each with a piece of salmon. Drizzle with lemon juice and add the onions.
This recipe is for 4 servings of salmon over greens.
If you're planning to save some of the salmon, take it out of the oven after 5 minutes of baking. Allow to cool, then store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When you reheat it later, be sure to cook it all the way through.
