One Meal You Never Thought You Could Pull Off So Quickly
Pickling vegetables on a weeknight may sound like a bit much, but Hay has a simple solution to make it a no-brainer: place thinly sliced red onions in a bowl with lemon juice, sugar, dill, salt and pepper and let them pickle while you cook the rest of the dinner. In this case, it's salmon fillets that you sprinkle with some herbs and spices and cook for about eight minutes over high heat. By the time the fish is ready, so are your pickled veggies—and the rich salmon and zippy onions complement each other perfectly.
