Anchorage Baked Salmon

2 large onions
2 cups water
2 cups tomato juice
1 tablespoon catsup
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 bay leaves
4 whole cloves
4 (8 ounce) salmon steaks

Cut onions into 1/2-inch slices, and separate into rings. Combine onion rings and water in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes. Add tomato juice and next 8 ingredients, stirring well; simmer 1 hour. Remove and discard bay leaves and cloves. Set sauce aside.

Brown salmon steaks on both sides in a large nonstick skillet. Place salmon in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Pour sauce over salmon, and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Yields 4 servings.
