Salmon Fillet with Vegetables

Like most people, I also have the new year resolution of being healthier every new year.  It's all the yummy Christmas and New Year celebration foods that are doing this to us.  Before it's too late... and I know that it's now middle of February,  I finally found some time to write down a delicious and healthy recipe for those who love salmon. 
I actually never had salmon before until I started living here.  It's a super delicious fish.  I cook it in various ways such as grill, pan fry, roast.  This way is similar how my mother cooked fish for us.  The taste of fish combines with the lovely smell of the cooked onions, tomatoes and lemons or other vegetables if you prefer.  You can serve this with some potatoes or rice.

Serves 2
2 medium size Salmon fillets without skin
200 g of mushrooms - sliced
2 medium size red onions - round sliced
1 medium size tomato - sliced
2-3 slices of lemon
chili powder
salt and pepper
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil 

Put about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a non-stick pan and heat it up to medium high.  Put the onions in and stir-fry them until they look a little bit pink.   In the mean time season your fillets with some salt, pepper and chili powder.  When onions are done, push them to the side of the pan and put the salmon fillets in.  When the fillets are fried on one side,  spread the onions back to the bottom of the pan and turn the fillets on the other side and put them over the onions.  Add in the mushrooms right after turning the fillets.  Salmon will cook quite quickly in about 10-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets you have.  2-3 minutes before you turn off the heat add in the tomato and lemon slices.  Add some seasoning to the vegetables as well and enjoy your salmon fillets.
