–salmon (size of 3 decks of cards, one-half pound)
–tarragon, chives, lemon zest, cayenne pepper
–lemon juice (bottled)
–marinara sauce with basil (I used Newman’s Own)
–onion (one-half, sliced)
–sherry (cooking sherry is fine)
–salt and pepper
1 – Slice half an onion and place in a covered baking dish. Add one-third bottle of marinara sauce/basil to the dish, along with a very small amount of sherry. Stir. Add a few drops of olive oil. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
2 – Place the salmon in the sauce/onions. Drench in lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper, fresh basil, tarragon, chives, lemon zest, and cayenne pepper (optional). Add a few drops of olive oil.
3 – Microwave on high for 6 minutes (more because of the sauce).
4 – Serve the salmon and sauce hot, atop pasta if desired (recipe, see search box on this blog).
