This could be one of the most satisfying things you can make in 20 minutes.
Salt and pepper your salmon and then preheat your grill, skillet or oven. Next, melt a few tablespoons of butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Slice your leeks in half the long way and then cut into 1/8-inch slices, rinse and dry if necessary. Add to the hot pan along with 1 teaspoon of sugar and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix well.
Stir the leeks every few minutes or so, allowing them to lightly brown but making sure they don’t burn. While they’re caramelizing start cooking your salmon. They both should be done in approximately 10 minutes. Top the salmon with the leeks and enjoy.
You see what I mean? And they’re just as amazing on chicken, beef, pork, rice, grains or pasta. Or simply on their own.
