Pomegranate & Orange Glazed Salmon


  • Side of salmon mine was 600 grams


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 cm piece ginger minced
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice


  • Half a red onion very thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of white vinegar


  • 1 cup Mint leaves
  • 1 cup coriander leaves
  • ½ pomegranate seeds removed
  • Tiny drizzle of olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 fan bake.
  2. Take a piece of baking paper and place on an oven tray.
  3. Place your side of salmon directly onto the tray and set aside
  4. Make your glaze by adding all ingredients together in a jar and shaking to combine. Taste and check seasoning. Set aside.
  5. Make your red onion pickle by adding all ingredients together in a bowl and stirring. Set aside.
  6. Once all your elements are ready, you are ready to cook your salmon.
  7. Spoon over the glaze and place in your oven. See cooking notes above, I check after 5 mins and then watch it pretty closely. Under is better than over.
  8. Once it is cooked take from the oven and let cool for a few mins so that when you add your herbs they don’t wilt.
  9. In a bowl combine some of your red onion pickle with the herbs and pomegranate and squeeze over half the lime.
  10. Top the fish with the pickled red onion mix and drizzle over a tiny bit of olive oil.
  11. Serve immediately.
