Salmon Filet with Onion Compote

This week-end I hosted a cooking class and we fixed several yummy fares. Salmon was on the menu. Since I had some uncooked salmon left over, I chose to fix that for dinner on Sunday night. I had been reading that cookbook about Papillottes called ” Papillottes et Bricks” de Frederic Berque, and find a recipe that I tweaked a bit. Here is mine:

Ingredients: 2 salmon filets, 1 purple onion chopped, 1 tsp of olive oil, salt and pepper, 1 tbsp of honey.

In a small saucepan, warm the olive oil. When the olive oil is warm, add the chopped onion and cook at medium-low heat until it becomes a dark golden color and is caramelizing. Add 1 tbsp of honey and stir. Lay the salmon filet on the silpat and sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper. Spoon the onion compote on top of the salmon and cook in the warm oven at 375 for 5-8 minutes ( 5 for medium-rare, and 8 for done). I served my salmon with summer roasted vegetables. Dinner was ready in 8 minutes, can’t beat that, and it was yummy;-) Et voila!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
