A variety of fish, such as salmon, arctic char or  halibut,  are all delicious  with this type of  preparation but if you’re looking for maximum anti-inflammatory effects, go for omega-3 rich selections.

Add in the onions and you’re getting a powerful anti-inflammatory wallop.


Grilled Fish with Caramelized Onions

Serves 4

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp  sugar
1/3 cup  orange juice
1/4 cup  balsamic vinegar
4  fish fillets, each about 6 ounces
Extra virgin olive oil to brush fish
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

To prepare onions, heat the  olive oil in a  heavy skillet over a medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until  translucent, about 10 minutes. Add sugar and stir through. Turn heat down to medium-low and  continue to cook,  another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.   Add  orange juice and vinegar; stir through. Continue cooking until the  mixture  evaporates.  Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Meanwhile preheat grill. Grill fish brushed with olive oil until cooked through. Serve fish topped with caramelized onions.
