Pomegranate-Glazed Salmon Recipe

    Ingredients:

    • 4 salmon fillets
    • 1 cup pomegranate juice
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • Fresh pomegranate arils (seeds) for garnish
    • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

    Instructions:

    1. Prepare the Pomegranate Glaze:

    In a small saucepan, combine pomegranate juice, honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, and grated ginger.

    Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

    Reduce the heat and let it simmer until the glaze thickens to a syrupy consistency, approximately 10-12 minutes.

    Remove from heat and set aside.

    2. Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

    3. Season the Salmon:

    Pat the salmon fillets dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and pepper.

    Place the salmon fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

    4. Glaze the Salmon:

    Brush the salmon fillets generously with the prepared pomegranate glaze, ensuring an even coating.

    5. Bake the Salmon:

    Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

    6. Glaze Again:

    During the last 5 minutes of baking, brush the salmon with an additional layer of the pomegranate glaze to intensify the flavor.

    7. Garnish and Serve:

    Once the salmon is done, remove it from the oven.

    Drizzle any remaining glaze over the salmon.

    Garnish with fresh pomegranate arils and chopped parsley for a burst of color and freshness.

    8. Serve Warm:

    Serve the pomegranate-glazed salmon over a bed of quinoa, rice, or your favorite grains.

    Spoon extra glaze over the top for a final touch of deliciousness.
