Sticky Pomegranate Salmon is a scrumptious dinner option. Fresh salmon is seared to perfection and then lathered with a homemade, sticky pomegranate glaze. The result is a salmon filet that is perfectly glazed and irresistible! Perfect for a weeknight meal, holiday dinner or date-night special.
What Type of Salmon to Use
One thing I love about this recipe is the versatiltiy of it! If you have a whole salmon filet or individual filets, you can still make this recipe work!
Here are the best kinds of salmon to use for this recipe:
- King salmon
- Sockeye salmon
- Coho salmon
If you are in Lincoln, NE, then you have to check out The Mercato. Their salmon is the best around! Packed with flavor and so fresh!
When using a whole salmon filet, it will be much easier to make this dish in the oven rather than searing the salmon on the stovetop. Glaze the salmon filet a couple times during the oven roasting time period to acheive the same effect.
How to Make the Pomegranate Glaze
Making a pomegranate glaze is not only achieved in a few simple steps, but it is a sure-way to add loads of flavor to your dish!
Pomegranate juice is the key to making this glaze.
Pour the pomegranate juice into a sauce pan, whisk in the brown sugar and bring to a simmer. Let the pomegranate glaze simmer and reduce before whisking in the corn starch and allowing to simmer more to thicken to desired consistency.
It’s scrumptiously delicious!
How to Serve Sticky Pomegranate Salmon
Not only is this dish delicious, but it also comes together in a snap! That makes it perfect for a weeknight dinner.
But, the best thing? It’s so decadently delicious that it can be SO much more than a weeknight dinner if you want it to be! Pull this recipe out for a show-stopper holiday meal, date night dinner or for any special occassion.
I love to serve this salmon with my Mashed Sweet Potatoes. They make for a vibrant side dish!
