    The Flying Chef's Note:

    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.

    1. 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. 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. 3

    4. 4
      For the Salmon.
    5. 5
      Season salmon fillets on both sides with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Heat remaining oil in a large pan add salmon, cook 3-6 Minutes a side depending on the thickness of the fillet.
    7. 7
      As a general rule I cook mine until nice and golden and fish flakes easily when a fork is inserted into flesh.
    8. 8
      Serve fish topped with onion and your favourite side dish.

      Delicious! I used fig walnut butter and instead of chicken boullion just used veg. broth in place of the water! I loved it! Thanks! Made for the Australian Recipe Swap-May 2009.

      YUMMY !! Made for Austraia/NZ Swap #25 --had frozen sockeye salmon fillets -- no fig preserves, and it was icy out there ! Subbed kumquat preserves (homemade by friend), and followed the rest of the recipe. VERY tasty -- a tad sweet for my taste - but a lovely combination. Thanks for posting, Flying Chef !
