Rosemary-Roasted Salmon

Here's a beautiful and easy main course to start the New Year off. It goes well with a mixed greens, fennel and orange salad with olives and orange vinaigrette, couscous, and a sauté of spinach and pine nuts. 

· 3 large bunches fresh rosemary
· 2 large red onions, thinly sliced
· 6 6- to 7-ounce salmon fillets
· 3 large lemons, thinly sliced
· 1/3 cup + 3 tablespoons olive oil
Accompaniment: Fennel and Orange Salad (recipe follows)
1. Preheat oven to 500°F. Arrange half of rosemary sprigs in single layer in center of heavy baking sheet. Arrange sliced red onion atop rosemary.
2. Place salmon, skin side down, atop red onion. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
3. Cover salmon with remaining rosemary sprigs. Arrange lemon slices over rosemary. Drizzle olive oil over. Sprinkle lemon slices with salt. (Can be prepared 8 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
4. Roast salmon until just cooked through, about 25-30 minutes. Transfer salmon to plates. Serve with roasted onions and lemon slices.
Yield: Makes 6 servings.
