  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and grease the foil with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the onions, vinegar and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until the sauce begins to caramelize, about 15 minutes.
  3. Melt butter with garlic in a small skillet over medium heat. Lay salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet, and brush with garlic butter. Pour the onion mixture over the fillets.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the fish flakes easily. Cooking time may vary with the thickness of your fillets.

Very unique combo and grouping of flavors! We LOVED it, but we like those flavors. It was so good my husband said he couldn't stop eating it! We also love salmon fillets too. We had it on wi...

don't use as much vinegar as it calls for - or use something else instead. The candied, caramelized onions were great though.

This recipe has too much vinegar and way too much sugar. It is just sicky sweet. The taste of the salmon doesn't come through at all.Lighten it up quite a bit by using less vinegar and sugar, a...

I followed directions and my family just loved it. We cant wait to try it on other fish and chicken, to see how well it turns out.
