1/3 Photos of Salmon Fillet With Caramelised Onion
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.
