In a frying pan, sauté onion in a little oil. After a few minutes, add vinegar and cook for 5 minutes more.
Place a little of this mixture on each sheet of foil. Place a fillet of salmon on top of the mixture and top with lemon slices.
Grate the zest of the orange and squeeze the orange and the second lemon. In a pan, reduce juice by half. Pour juice into the foil parcels and sprinkle with ginger and coriander. Season with pepper.
