Easy Recipes: Baked Pomegranate Salmon

Sharing is caring!

I have told you many times we are huge fans of salmon. I can even get the four year old to eat it without any complaints.

It doesn’t hurt that it’s healthy and high in protein.

This time of year I do not do a lot of outdoor grilling, instead I bake my salmon. It cooks super fast and goes well with so many different dishes.

A few weeks back we were at Trader Joe’s and I noticed they had pomegranate seeds. I grabbed a container and knew I could make something with them.

I used them many times as an addition to our salad, my husband added them to ice cream (and said they were awesome) and I made a baking sauce with them for our salmon. I love easy recipes like this!

Here is how you make it.

salmon with pomegranate seeds


  • 6-8 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 c hoisin sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (or a spoonful of the jarred stuff)
  • 1/4 c pomegranate juice
  • 2 T pomegranate seeds
  • a few pinches of kosher salt
  • a few cracks of fresh pepper

Mix the fist four ingredients together. Whisk them if you need to.

Add in the pomegranate seeds. Stir well to combine.

Place the salmon in a cookie sheet. I cover the cookie sheet in parchment paper to make clean up easier.

Sprinkle the tops of the salmon fillets with kosher salt and a few cracks of pepper.

Evenly spread the marinate over the tops of the salmon.

Pop them in a 350 degree oven and bake for 15-20 minutes depending on how well you like your salmon.

Serve it over a bed of rice. Here is my easy recipe for making rice. You’ll love what I add to spruce up the flavor.

I also served this with a aide salad topped with more pomegranate seeds as well as dinner rolls.
