Spicy Salmon with Caramelized Onions

My Uncle Elwin gave us some frozen salmon he had caught earlier in the year.  He delivered it all the way from Seattle (gosh I'm SO special!!)!!  I found this recipe on AllRecipes.com: Spicy Salmon with Caramelized Onions and boyyyy was it yummy!!  I hadn't finished the onions when I took the picture, but it was paired perfectly with the salmon!!  

Here's the recipe if you don't feel like clicking the link:  (surprisingly I had all of the ingredients on hand!)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
  •  
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced onion

Directions

  1. Combine the black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, onion powder, and salt in a small bowl. Stir in 1 tablespoon of olive oil to make a paste. Spread the paste all over the salmon fillets, and set aside to marinate at room temperature 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Heat a separate non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the salmon fillets in the hot skillet until golden brown on each side, and no longer translucent in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Pour the browned onions and olive oil over the salmon fillets to serve.


I followed the above exactly.  Even the boyfriend agreed it was really tasty!
