I used fresh figs from my tree, sliced in quarters, and it was great. We also froze some and reheated it and it was excellent again. Of all the many fig recipes I have tried to use the often overwhelming amount of fruit produced by this one small tree, this is one of the very best and lovely for company dinner. Highly recommended!

This is gourmet food! I'm not much of a salmon or fish person but this was amazing! I did find it a bit too sweet but I think my husband put too many figs in it. Next time I'll make sure there's more onions than figs. We served it with beet salad and baked polenta. We will definitely make this again. Thank you!

I feel like a pampered princess! This recipe and a nice glass of wine... Mmmmm! We had only one salmon fillet left so I thawed it to have for lunch today. This recipe would help me use up the lonely fish and the leftover figs from another recipe. It's super easy to make & Oh So Delicious! Every flavor was prominent without overpowering any other. I loved the whole combination. Made just as directed (except scaled down for one serving) and wouldn't change a thing. Oh, I did have to use cilantro for garnish instead of parsley. Thanks for posting, Chia! :)
