  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 salmon filets
  • 6 Ritz crackers, finely crushed
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • Lemon pepper, to taste
  • Oregano, to taste


  1. Sauté the chopped onion in the vinegar and oil until transparent. Push mixture to sides of skillet and insert the two salmon filets, skin-side down. Never flip them!
  2. Spoon the onion sauce over the filets and cook (covered if possible to retain moisture) until filets are nearly done.
  3. In a small bowl, mix cracker crumbs with equal parts of Parmesan cheese.
  4. Add a couple drops of olive oil to moisten the crumb mix.
  5. Coat the cooking salmon with the crumb mix, spooning any sauce from the skillet over the tops of the crumbed filets. Cook fish thoroughly.
