If you like salmon, there are simple and fast ways to cook a tasty salmon steak. Wrapping a thick steak marinated in oil and lemon in tin foil will help to seal in the juices while it cooks. Served with sautéed onions, a salmon steak makes a delicious and healthy meal, packed with protein and omega-3 fatty acids.

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 204 degrees Cor 15 minutes.

  2. 2

    Rinse your salmon steak in water to clean it. Then marinate it with a thin coat of extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle a little salt and pepper on it.

  3. 3

    Cut the white onions in long strips while finely dicing the spring onions into minced pieces.

  4. 4

    Oil the sauté pan lightly and turn on the hob to medium-high heat.

  5. 5

    Let the oil warm up a little bit, then toss both green and white onions into the skillet and sauté them until cooked (about five to seven minutes or until soft).

  6. 6

    Pour the cooked onions into a bowl and set it aside.

  7. 7

    Line the baking tray with tin foil and place the salmon on it. Fold up the sides of the foil so it encases the salmon.

  8. 8

    Pop the salmon into the oven and bake it for about 15 minutes.

  9. 9

    Check on it occasionally and stick a fork through the centre to see if it is moist and flaky and fully cooked or if it still needs a few more minutes in the oven.

  10. 10

    Once the salmon is done, take it out and it'll easily slip off the tin foil and onto a plate.

  11. 11

    Sprinkle the sauted onions on top of it and serve.
