This is from March '08 edition of Cooking Light. The caramelized leeks get sweet and play very well off the slightly kicked-up salmon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Remove roots, outer leaves, and tops from leeks. Cut leeks in half lengthwise. Rinse thoroughly with cold water, and cut each half into 3 inch julienne strips.
  3. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add leeks to pan; cook 4 minutes or until slightly wilted, stirring occasionally. Stir in brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 20 minutes or until edges are browned, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat: stir in juice. Keep warm.
  4. Place salmon on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; sprinkle salmon with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon red pepper. Bake salmon at 400 degrees fro 8-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Place one filet on each of 4 plates; top with leek mixture.
