zest/juice of 1 lemon
2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided

2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
- Zest/grate lemon peel (no white; 1 teaspoon); squeeze lemon for juice (2 tablespoons).
- Slice onions and garlic. Cut tomatoes into quarters, then cut quarters into thin strips. Chop cilantro.
- Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Season fish with 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Place 1 tablespoon oil in pan; cook 1–2 minutes on each side or until seared and browned. Remove salmon from pan; cover loosely and set aside.

- Reduce heat to medium. Add cumin, coriander, and pepper flakes; cook 1 more minute or until fragrant.
- Reduce heat to medium-low; return salmon to pan. Add broth and tomatoes; simmer 3–4 minutes or until liquid has reduced by about one-half and salmon is 145°F. Remove pan from heat; stir in lemon juice, zest, and cilantro. Serve.
