Spicy Salmon with Caramelized Onions

Posted on

Serves 2


•    1 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 onion

1. 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.

2. 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. Heat a separate non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the salmon fillets in the hot skillet until golden brown on each side, and no longer translucent in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Pour the browned onions and olive oil over the salmon fillets to serve.
