- 4, 6 oz Portions Secret Island Salmon
- 4 tsp. of Olive Oil, divided
- 1 medium yellow onion, julienned
- 1 cup figs, halved
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flake
- 2 tsp. kosher salt
- 2 tsp. honey
- Juice and zest of a lemon
- 1 tbsp. of butter
- Place onions in a large skillet with 2 tsp oil over medium heat to caramelize.
- After onions begin to soften (6-7 minutes), add red pepper flake and figs. Reduce heat to low, stirring occasionally.
- Using a paper towel, pat filets dry and salt both sides evenly. In a large, heavy bottomed skillet, add remaining 2 tsp olive oil and heat until smoking over medium high heat.
- Sear salmon, skin side down, for 3 minutes. Flip each filet and place in oven set to 400 for 8-9 minutes.
- Finish the Caramelized Figs and Onions: Stir in honey and butter. Remove from heat and quickly stir in lemon zest and juice. A smooth, velvety pan sauce should form.
- To Plate: Remove salmon from oven and pour sauce over, spooning figs and onions evenly over each filet.
