Grilled Salmon with Grilled Red Onions
Char-grilled, red onions pair perfectly with simply grilled salmon.
2 pounds salmon fillet
2 red onions, peeled
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons peanut oil
3/4 teaspoon salt - divided use
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper - divided use
- Preheat grill.
- Divide salmon into six pieces. Slice red onions about 1/2-inch thick crosswise.
- In a shallow dish, mix olive oil with peanut oil, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Add onions and turn to coat evenly. Grill for 5 minutes, turn, and grill another 5 minutes or until soft and starting to brown.
- Meanwhile, season the salmon with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper then brush with the oil mixture. Place on the grill for 3 minutes, turn and grill for 3 more minutes, or until opaque. Serve with onions.
