When I share a fish recipe, I often mention that fish has been an acquired taste for me. As you read through my fish recipes you will see the progression from me stating that I don’t like fish, to “I’m not that fond of fish” to “I have come to love mild fish” to “I have learned to enjoy salmon”. This recipe for Salmon with Pomegranate Glaze is the official last step in my progress as I have finally found a Salmon recipe that I absolutely love.
I have enjoyed my salmon with balsamic glaze, but the more vinegar you use, the more sugar or honey you must use. I decided to use pomegranate tea to add flavor to the glaze,. Using flavored tea allowed me to use less pomegranate vinegar and consequently less sugar. Yes, I am feeling ridiculously healthy right now.
- 1 - 2 pounds salmon
- ½ cup water
- 2 Bigelow Pomegranate tea bags
- 1 tablespoon pomegranate vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- Bring the water to a boil and steep the tea bags for 5 minutes. Squeeze all of the liquid from the tea bags.
- Combine the pomegranate tea, vinegar, honey, sugar, and cornstarch in a small sauce pan. cook over a medium flame until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes until it becomes a thin syrup.
- Pour half of the glaze over the salmon and let it marinate fro 2 hours. Reserve the remaining glaze to put on the cooked salmon.
- After marinating cook the salmon at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until it is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork.
- Serve immediately, with glaze drizzled over the top.
