This recipe combines salmon with sweet vidalia onions and a sweet and spicy pineapple salsa. It looks gourmet but is easy to make!
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1/2 of 15.5 ounce canned pineapple (in its own juice), drained and diced into small pieces or the equivalent amount of fresh
1 small tomato, seeded and diced
1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped

Medium salmon filet (12 oz), rinsed
1-2 large Vidalia or sweet onions, thinly sliced
1/8 cup water or dry white wine
1/2 tsp dried tarragon
Fresh basil to taste, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Combine salsa ingredients. Cover and refrigerate. *You can make this ahead of time.*
2 Preheat oven to 350. Cut two pieces of aluminum foil long enough to cover the length of the salmon with a few extra inches on each end.
3 Place one piece of foil on the counter and the place sliced onions in the middle. Place salmon on top and sprinkle with tarragon, basil, salt and pepper.
4 Place other piece of foil on top and seal one side and one end. Pour water or wine over the top of the fish and seal the remaining two sides.
5 Place on a baking sheet or pan and bake for about 30 minutes. Carefully unwrap one end of the foil to let steam escape (be careful, steam is hot!). Test fish with a fork, it should be moist but flake easily with a fork.
6 If fish is done, remove the other foil piece and place the salmon with onions on a plate or serving platter. Serve with pineapple salsa.
