(Bon Appetit February 2000)
2 large bunches fresh rosemary
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
1 2 pound center-cut salmon fillet with skin
2 large lemons, sliced
1/3 cup olive oil
Preheat oven to 500 F. Arrange half of rosemary springs in single layer in center of heavy baking sheet. Arrange red onion atop rosemary. Place salmon, skin side down, atop red onion. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. 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.) Roast salmon until just cooked through, about 20 minutes. Transfer salmon to plates. Serve with roasted onions and lemon slices.
