    Things To Grab

    • 15×10-inch rimmed baking pan
    • Aluminum foil
    • Silicone pastry brush
    • Paper towels
    • Small bowl
    • Large bowl
    • Large serving platter


    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut each onion into 3 (3/4-inch-thick) slices. Line a 15×10-in. rimmed baking pan with foil. Arrange onion slices in prepared pan. Brush tops of onion slices with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes.

    2. Pat salmon dry with paper towels. Place in baking pan with onions, tucking under thin edges of salmon if necessary. Brush salmon with lime juice; sprinkle with chipotle powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Roast for 6 to 9 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork (145 degrees) and onions begin to brown.
