Grilled Salmon, Balsamic Onions And Polenta Recipe from Flying Fish Cafe, BoardWalk
4 salmon fillets (5 oz. each)
I Tbs. olive oil
1/4 tsp. each salt and freshly ground pepper
2 large red onions, each cut into
8 wedges with root end and skin attached
3 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp. each salt and freshly ground
2 tsp. honey
2 thyme sprigs
1 roll (24 oz) heat and serve polenta, sliced in 12 rounds (often in the produce section)
Nonstick cooking spray
Heat barbecue grill, ridged grill pan or broiler. Have ready two 12 in. long pieces heavy duty foil. Rub salmon with the oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Balsamic Onions: Turn up edges of both pieces foil. Place ingredients near I end of each sheet. Fold other half of foil over onion filling. Fold edges over tightly to prevent leaks. Grill or broil 10 minutes, turn over and cook 5 to I0 minutes longer until onions are tender when packets are pierced. Open carefully; discard onion skins and thyme.
Spray polenta slices with cooking spray; grill or broil 3 minutes per side.
Grill or broil salmon (see Tip) 4 to 5 minutes per side until opaque in center. Serve with the onions and polenta.
Cooks Note: If you can't fit everything on your grill at once, grill the onions and polenta first and keep warm on a covered serving platter, then grill the salmon.
