Pomegranate-Glazed Salmon

  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 35 min
  • Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup pomegranate juice 175 mL
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey 45 mL
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme 10 mL
  • 2 lb 1 side of salmon 1 kg
  • ¾ tsp salt 4 mL
  • ½ tsp pepper 2 mL
  • ½ cup low-fat sour cream 125 mL
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill 15 mL
  • 1 tbsp prepared horseradish 15 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). To make glaze, combine pomegranate juice and maple in small skillet set over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer 5 to 10 min., until reduced to about ⅓ cup (75 mL) and consistency of maple syrup. Stir in thyme.

  • Step 2

    Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place salmon on parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with pomegranate glaze. Bake 18 to 20 min., brushing with collected juices half-way through, until fish flakes easily with a fork.

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, make sauce by mixing sour cream, dill and horseradish. Serve salmon with sauce spooned over top.

Tip

Substitute maple syrup for honey, or 100% cranberry juice for pomegranate juice.
