This is one of the recipes I just keep on making, but somehow I never posted about it. The idea came from Nigella Lawson’s Forever Summer, where she used a similar marinade for salmon kebabs on the barbecue. Over time I played with the ratio of ingredients until I thought it was perfect and nowadays I prepare this in seconds.
It’s my favorite way to make Glazed Salmon and it gives the fish a gorgeous shiny gloss. It’s basically just a marinade; delicious and intense in all his simpleness. It’s the combination of the sticky honey combined with the deep, sweet and slightly sour pomegranate molasses and a touch of salty honey that makes this dish so good. It’s something you can’t make just once, it’s just too delicious!
When I cook the salmon, I usually add the marinade the last minutes for a lick-your-fingers-good sauce.
Pomegranate molasses may not be in your cupboard yet, but I can really recommended it (not only for this dish: it’s also delicious in salads, sprinkled over grilled vegetables, to give sauces an extra deepness or sweet bakes a nice touch).
Because of the Middle-Eastern flavor of the pomegranate, I like to serve this glazed salmon with some couscous. But I have to say it’s equally good with some fried gnocchi (or any side for that matter)!
