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.
NEED TO SAVE MONEY
ON YOUR GROCERY BILL?
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.
- 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.
And that is it, dinner is done! Perfect for a busy weeknight!
