Sticky Pomegranate Salmon

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!

Description

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.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn starch
  • 4 salmon filets, about 46 oz each
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Pour the pomegranate juice into a small sauce pan and whisk in the brown sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and then reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer and reduce slightly, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the cornstarch into a small bowl and carefully whisk in a spoonful or two of the pomegranate mixture. Then, whisk the cornstarch slurry back into the simmering pomegranate juice. Whisk until smooth. Allow to simmer and thicken for 5-10 more minutes or until the juice has thickened into a glaze.
  3. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the salmon filets in top-side down first and sear for several minutes until golden brown. Flip and sear the bottom sides of the salmon filets for another several minutes. Reduce the heat if needed.
  4. Glaze the salmon filets several times with the pomegranate glaze while they are finishing cooking after you flip them. The filets should be sticky and glazed until all the glaze has been used.

Notes

  • King, sockeye or coho salmon can be used for this recipe.
  • Make an extra batch of pomegranate glaze if you would like additional to serve alongside.
  • A whole salmon filet can also be used for this recipe, but will need to be cooked in the oven vs. seared on the stovetop. Heat your oven to 400 degrees and place the whole filet on a baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, glazing occasionally with the pomegranate glaze until the salmon is cooked through.
