I made up another recipe. I think it's vaguely French. I like to imagine that Julia Child whispers in my ear. Maybe I should take something for that? Nah...
Anyway, I decided it was French because it had mayonnaise and vermouth. It was definitely delicious. Rather hard to go wrong with wild Alaskan salmon.
So... you slice an onion thin, chop a couple of large cloves of garlic, and sauté in bacon fat (of course!) until pretty darn soft. Just don't burn the garlic.
Plop your salmon fillets in a pan, skin down. Pour a bit of vermouth around them. 1/4 cup, or so. In a small bowl, stir up two heaping spoonfuls of mayonnaise, a squirt of fresh lemon juice, grated rind from half a lemon, salt, and white pepper. Spread that on top of the salmon, then top with sautéed onions and garlic. Bake, covered, at 375 for 15-20 minutes, removing cover for the last 5. If I had a decent broiler, I'd broil for a minute or two, to brown up the onions.
