Bacon-Wrapped Cobia Fillets with Rosemary Caramelized Onions

Rosemary Caramelized Onions
2 TBSP butter
6 medium onions, sliced
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, finely minced
2 TBSP chicken broth
Pinch of sea salt

Bacon-Wrapped Cobia Fillets:
4 cobia fillets
8 slices thick-cut bacon
1/2 tsp. avocado oil
4 cups fresh baby arugula
1 lemon

Melt butter in skillet over medium-low heat.
Add onions to skillet and cook for 30 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes and scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
Add in the rosemary and stir. Cook for another 15 to 20 minutes.
After the onions are brown and caramelized, add chicken broth and a pinch of salt to deglaze the pan.
Scrape the bottom and gently mix.
Set aside the onions in a bowl.
Rinse and dry the cobia fillets.
Lay out bacon strips in pairs with one slightly overlapping the other.
Place each fillet at the end of each pair of bacon strips and tightly wrap the bacon around the fillets tightly enough for the bacon to stay put while cooking, but not so tight that you begin to actually stretch the bacon.
Lightly coat a large skillet or saute pan with avocado oil and heat over medium heat.
Once the pan is hot, place the fillets seam side down in the pan and cook for 7 minutes.
Flip the fillets to the other side using a spatula and cook for another 7 minutes.
Take a couple minutes and carefully brown the other sides of the fillets to get the rest of the bacon crispy before serving. The total cooking time will be approximately 16 to 17 minutes for 1/2-inch thick fillets.
Arrange arugula on plates and divide the caramelized onions over the arugula.
Place one fillet on top of each and squeeze a little lemon juice over the arugula.
Serve immediately.
