Easy, Delicious Salmon Topped With Shallot or Onion

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Natalia 3

This is a welcome alternative to salmon with lemon or butter and herbs. I myself am not a huge fan of mayonnaise, but in this recipe it is perfect. The recipe is fantastic with either Shallots or Onion slices. I like to use a good mayo like Smart Balance.

Salmon is my absolutely favorite fish, and lucky enough to have a piece of wild Alaskan salmon, I tried this. Not bad. I prepared exactly as directed by the recipe. Wish I had stuck to butter, dill, and lemon. If you like a touch of sweetness in your fish, this may work for you. Thanks for offering an alternative, Natalia 3. Janey
