4 fresh salmon filets (5 oz. each)
salt and pepper
1/2 c. finely chopped red onion
1/2 c. dry white wine or 1/4 c. each lemon juice and water
3 medium yellow onions, sliced
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. orange peel, grated
1 tsp. lime peel, grated
3/4 c. orange juice
1 qt. mixed dark leafy salad greens
fresh dill sprigs
What to do:
1. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Divide red onion between salmon filets and press on evenly with back of spoon.
2. Pour wine into 10" skillet and heat until it bubbles at the edges. Set salmon in wine, cover and return liquid to a gentle boil. Let cook gently without turning for 6 or 7 minutes or until salmon is just cooked through and topping is rosy. You can check if done by poking the tip of a sharp knife into the thickest part of one filet and check that inside color has paled.
3. Chill fish and liquid.
4. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add yellow onions and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until they are soft and sweet. Remove from heat and mix in orange and lime peels and orange juice. Cover and chill.
5. Place lettuce onto 4 plates. Top with salmon filets. Lift onions from liquid with slotted spoon or fork and top salmon. Spoon juice from onions over salmon and lettuce. Garnish with dill.

*If salmon filets have skin on them, purchase 4 (6 ounce) filets and pull off skin.
