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! :)

Absolutely delicious! I think this is going to be a fall favorite with our family. I substituted red wine vinegar for the balsamic vinegar and skipped the parsley since I didn't have any. Also I always rub olive oil and kosher salt into my salmon and broil it. I know we'll make this recipe again and again!

I made this with tilapia, because that was what I had in the freezer. I used fresh figs and a red onion. It is truly to die for!! This will be added to my regular repertoire. Cooking time is not short, but doesn't require that much intense attention.

What a great dish! My whole family was drooling while it was cooking, the house smelled heavenly. Super easy to make and I did "as is" except I baked the salmon at 375. I think my only addition would be to add more figs, just because I love them and they tasted so good with the onions.

Very delicious! The sweet caramelized onions and figs go great with the smooth salmon. The only other comment I have is that the "sauce" wasn't really a sauce at all - it was just flavorful onions and figs. But still great!

Chia, I really enjoyed this recipe! I made it down in Miami while visiting my mother. A nice smooth sauce that was a good compliment to the salmon. Thanks!
