A fresh salmon fillet smothered in fennel and onions--so good. Simple and healthy too!

This is really a beautifully simple, fresh dish. The salmon and fennel flavors are mild. I did add a bit of extra garlic, because we love it so much. But I stuck with the recipe overall. Next time I think I will keep the onions, garlic and fennel on low heat on the stovetop throughout the cooking time for the fish, so they have a chance to caramelize. Then I would top the fish just prior to serving. But even made as is, simple, clean and delicious food. Thanks, ieatfoOOod! Made for PAC, Spring 2008
