Glazed Pomegranate-Orange Salmon – Recipe!

Print Friendly

I am a seafood person like many of you and on several nights a week, I prepare a fish dish in my household.  Salmon is my fish of choice, especially if I can find a good piece that looks and smells so fresh and yesterday, while shopping at my local farmer’s market, they had a really nice piece of fish.  Glazed Pomegranate-Orange Salmon is a delicious and simple recipe that’s made in the oven in less than 30 minutes and tastes like you’re dining in the Mediterranean.

The glaze is whisked together in a measuring cup and painted on top of the fish twice, before and during cooking.  I used sliced oranges as a base in the dish and placed the salmon on top to keep it tender and to infuse a bit more orange into the salmon.  Pomegranate molasses is what I used to give the glaze it’s pomegranate taste – mildly fruity with tangy notes.  You can find it online or in Mediterranean or Middle Eastern grocery stores.  Another option is to prepare your own and store it in the refrigerator, so you can use it in other recipes; like salad dressings or to glaze chicken, or turkey.  I think you will love this recipe – it’s simple flavors are so fresh and delightful.
