- 1 lb salmon filets
- 2 cups pomegranate juice
- ¾ tsp salt
- ⅛ tsp pepper
- 1 tsp oil
- Put the salmon filets in the shallow dish. Pour the pomegranate juice over them. Marinate on the counter for 15 minutes.
- Take the salmon out of the pomegranate juice, put it in another dish and rub the salmon with salt and pepper. Pour the pomegranate juice marinade into a small pot.
- Bring the pomegranate juice in a pot to a boil over high heat. Keep boiling until the juice is reduced by ¾th (there is only a fourth of the juice left) and it becomes thick.
- While the pomegranate juice is boiling, cook the salmon. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the salmon and cook 4 minutes on one side, then flip and cook 3 minutes on the other side.
- Remove the salmon from the frying pan onto a plate and drizzle the pomegranate sauce over the salmon.
