Original Basque recipe for salmon, tuna, or similar fish. This was made by fisherman and is almost foolproof. You won't believe how juicy the dish turns out! I recommend serving with wine, fresh French bread, and homemade mayonnaise.

  • Cover the pot and place over low heat. Cook until the top layer of onions is tender, about 45 minutes.

To make homemade mayonnaise, whisk 1 egg yolk in a bowl with a fork. Pour in 1 cup olive oil, a little at a time, whisking until thoroughly incorporated. Mix in juice of 1/4 lemon and salt to taste.
