Salmon with Escarole and Lemon

Source: Everyday Food, January 2008

Ingredients

  • 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 heads escarole (2 pounds total), cored, trimmed, and coarsely chopped
  • 4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets, (6 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Thinly slice off both ends of one lemon. Cut into 8 thin slices. From remaining lemon, squeeze 1 to 2 tablespoons juice into a bowl.

  2. In a 5-quart Dutch oven or heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high. Cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes.

  3. Stir in escarole and 1/2 cup water. Arrange salmon on top; season with salt and pepper. Place 2 lemon slices on each fillet. Cover, and cook until salmon is opaque throughout, 12 to 14 minutes.

  4. Transfer salmon to a plate. Stir lemon juice into escarole mixture. Serve salmon with escarole.
