Fish with Honey and Balsamic Onions

I really want to cook fish on a regular basis. I've found swai fillets in the bag, and they taste just like halibut or any other white fish-and are slightly cheaper! Balsamic vinegar will always make a dish better for me.

Fish with Honey and Balsamic Onions-adapted from Cook This Now by Melissa Clark
Total Time: 20 Minutes
Serves 4

  • 4 whitefish fillets, such as halibut or swai
  • Lemon pepper, to taste
  • 2 small onions, quartered
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
Season the fish with lemon pepper. In a large sauce pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, thyme and salt. Cover and cook until almost tender, about 3 minutes.

Uncover the pan, turn the onions, and continue to cook until they caramelize, about 3 minutes more. Add two tablespoons balsamic vinegar and the honey to the pan, let cook for about 20 seconds, then immediately transfer the onions to a bowl.

Heat the remaining oil in the pan until very hot. Lower the heat to medium low, add the fish, and cook about 4 minutes a side. Add the remaining balsamic vinegar and remove to plates. Serve with onions.
