Sweet Glazed Salmon with Sauté Onions


Here's another impromptu dinner I made tonight. Salmon is highly nutritious. Just to name a few, it has high protein, "good fats" and omega-3 fatty acids. If you have high cholesterol, eating fish can help lower bad LDL cholesterol and reduces your risk of heart disease. Eating fish is also good for your hair and skin. So eat at least 2-3 times a week for health benefits.

Serves 2


2 salmon pieces
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1/4 Cup Agave Nectar (or honey)
1/3 Cup orange juice, fresh
1/2 tsp white ground pepper
2-3 garlic, minced
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
Sprig of parsley, for garnish (optional)


1. In a large bowl, whisk together EVOO, Agave Nectar, orange juice, white ground pepper, and garlic. Add the salmon pieces and let it marinade for 15 mins.
2. In a large sauté pan in med-high heat, pan fry the salmon for 5 mins on each side or until it's golden brown. Place the salmon on a plate and set it aside.
3. In the same pan, pour the remaining marinade and cook the onion until soft and caramelized.
4. Plate the dish and garnish with a sprig of parsley.
