1. Make maple syrup sauce first. In a small saucepan heat maple syrup and balsamic vinegar for 1-2 minutes, then stir in icing sugar. Keep stirring until semi-thick. Set aside and refrigerate while you prep other ingredients.
2. Slice onion in rings. Finely dice garlic clove or grind in spice grinder.
3. Prep Salmon by squeeze half a small lime over it. You can cut the salmon in 4 thin slices or just 2 thick slices. Lightly coat the slices in the maple syrup sauce.
4. Heat a skillet and add olive oil. (It heats quickly so move fast.) Add garlic and onion, slightly cook it. Then add a bit of the maple sauce for about 30 seconds then add the salmon. Flip over twice for the Salmon to absorb the flavor.
Tip: You may add the remainder of the maple syrup sauce over the cooked salmon while still on the skillet for a richer flavor.
To make this baked, simply prepare as above, but set onion slices on a baking shear and salmon on top then coat with Maple syrup sauce.
You need to move fast when cooking this dish because you don't need much heating time.
