2 small onions

Sea salt, thyme, other seasonings of your choice.

1 lemon

2. Meanwhile, chop one small onion very thinly, fry them in a wok with a bit of butter.

3. Pour 100ml of white wine inside the wok, stir gently and let it heat for 5 minutes.

4. Pour 250ml of single cream, mix it with the wine and keep stirring, let it heat for 5-7min.

3.ย Grilled salmon in a honey and soy marinade. Served with rice, and/or sweet potatoes.

How to do it: Prepare a honey and soy marinade (2 tablespoons of honey, mixed with 4 tablespoons of soy). Mix well. Add salt, pepper, and any seasonings of your choice (e.g. Chinese 5 spices, fish seasoning etc.).

Gently place your fillets inside the marinade, let it restย in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. Turn the fish occasionally so the marinade penetrates the fish well.

Grill it in the oven for 15-20min.
