“This salmon recipe has a great end result and we love what the caramelised onion brings to the dish . It is not hard to make or too time consuming, the main time is spent caramelising the onion and reducing it down. I served ours with seasoned potato chips and asparagus for a great tasting healthy meal.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan add sliced onion, cook until onions soften, approx 5-8 Min's, lower heat, cook onions for an additional 5-10 Minutes until they turn golden.
  2. Add wine, water, vinegar, fig preserves, stock granules and honey, bring to the boil, reduce heat, simmer uncovered about 30 Minutes to caramelise onion and reduce liquid.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and add rosemary, stir to combine.
  4. For the Salmon.
  5. Season salmon fillets on both sides with salt and pepper.
  6. Heat remaining oil in a large pan add salmon, cook 3-6 Minutes a side depending on the thickness of the fillet.
  7. As a general rule I cook mine until nice and golden and fish flakes easily when a fork is inserted into flesh.
  8. Serve fish topped with onion and your favourite side dish.
