Pan Roasted Pomegranate Glazed Salmon | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

I could not be happier about the return of pomegranates, and I am celebrating them with this pan roasted pomegranate glazed salmon.

Have you ever seen such a pretty piece of salmon? It’s the pomegranate arils, they get me every season, SO pretty!

Today I am going to attempt to jump right into the recipe because one, I have so much to say about it, and two, I need to go respond to everyone’s kind comments from the last few days (THANK YOU!).

This salmon is delicious and totally not your same old dull salmon dinner, which I don’t know about you guys, but it just makes me cringe even thinking about another plate of ordinary salmon and broccoli. I mean, right?!?

Trust me, there’s nothing boring about this sheet pan roasted salmon. It’s sweet, tangy, and all things semi-addictive…or about as addictive as salmon and veggies can be (let’s just be real, it’s not cheesy pasta…).

Lately I’ve been so into letting my oven do all the work of cooking. I suppose that’s kind of odd, since we’re just coming off of summer, and summer is supposed to be all about no oven cooking. But because of where I live, and the very, very mild temperatures we have all summer long, I pretty much use my oven daily.

Thankfully, the temperatures should be starting to cool off in most parts of the US soon, and that means back to roasting things. YAY!

Here’s the deal, this salmon recipe could not be any more uncomplicated. It’s no secret around here that I like to have fun with my recipes. Thus I’m also totally unafraid to whip up a few complicated recipes every now and then. But many times simple is best, and that’s this salmon recipe, simple, but yummy!

Here’s how this salmon goes down. Start out by roasting up some brussels sprouts, which if you don’t like can easily be swapped for a veggie you do love. I think any kind of winter squash would incredible, as would broccoli. That said, I personally love the brussels sprouts paired with the sweet pomegranate over the salmon. Although, I do love roasted brussels sprouts…

Anyway, on to the salmon. While the sprouts begin roasting, mix up a super quick, sweet and sticky pomegranate glaze. I used a mix of pomegranate molasses, sweet chili sauce, pomegranate juice, ginger, and garlic. Just a few ingredients, but still so full of flavor.

After the brussels sprouts have roasted a bit, you’ll add the salmon and then spread the glaze over top. Roast for a bit longer and DONE.

Do you see what I mean? So uncomplicated. Cool. Cool.

My favorite way of serving up this salmon is with some steamed rice. It completes this Asian inspired meal. OH, and the glaze? Well, as mentioned it’s sweet and sticky, but honestly it’s one of my go-to glazes for so many Asian inspired recipes. It takes every recipe from good to addictingly good.

And guys, that’s kind of it. Simple recipe, but don’t let that fool you, it’s just as delicious, if not more so, than any other more complicated salmon recipe.

And lastly? Can we just talk cookbook things real fast? I know I have not stopped talking about the cookbook literally all week, but you guys are killing me with your kindness these last few days. The amount of comments, emails, and DM’s on Instagram have me in just utter shock.

I am so thankful for you guys! The book is doing so well and it’s all because of each of YOU! Thank you!

OKAY…enough gushing…off to go respond to all of you kind followers. It might take me a while, but I am going to try to read everyone’s comments and respond the best I can! Keep bugging me if I don’t respond to any questions. There has been a ton, so it’s a little hard to keep up and keep track!

Good news for me is that at least I know what dinner is going to be. I am in need of something on the healthier side (made a lot of cheesy things and fried things this week…along with a little celebration cake!), so this is the perfect recipe for tonight. Plus, I went crazy at the store and stocked up on all the brussels sprouts and pomegranates I could get my hands on…I am so weird.

OKAY. Now I am done.

    I made this tonight, exactly as the recipe said and it was delicious! That glaze on the salmon was so delicious and caramelized on some of the Brussels sprouts. Looks very festive, I will definitely be making this for company! Thank you!

  2. Please separate out the comments from those who have ACTUALLY MADE the dish from those who haven’t. Reading how wonderful it sounds isn’t helpful! Smitten Kitchen does this on their website and it saves a lot of scrolling! Love your website otherwise, thank you!

    Hello again, 🙂
    This is a wonderful recipe – I also added your coconut rice as a side. I am new to both pomegranate and brussels sprouts and this was a great recipe to get acquainted. 🙂 To give the sprouts extra crunch, I lay them on their flat side and don’t toss them around. Gives them a nice caramelization. So yummy! Thanks again!

  4. Do the Brussels sprouts continue to roast with the salmon? Also, if replacing pomegranate molasses with regulate molasses, should I change the juice quantity?

    1. Hi Nicole! Yes, the brussels continue to roast with the salmon. No need to adjust the juice. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan

  5. My friend introduced me to your blog about two months ago and I have made 8 of your recipes. This one was such a huge hit! Because I am always trying to find new ways to cook salmon! Thank you for this beautiful and delicious meal!!!

  6. This looks amazing! I wonder if you or anyone out there has made this with another type of fish, since I’m not crazy about salmon but love any other kind. Thanks!

    1. I have not tried this with other fish, but I think another filet that you love would work great! Just adjust the coking time due to the different fish sizes. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much! ?Tieghan

    1. Hey Jill! I buy it at my local Whole Foods. If you can’t find it regular molasses works just as well! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much! xTieghan

  7. Hi there! What do you use for the sweet chili sauce? And as for a substitute for molasses all together, would honey work? Thanks!

  8. This looks amazing!! Would there be a way to use this recipe & get still get crispy salmon skin? I’m making a big dinner on Sunday for 10 people. So I ordered 10 salmon filets (1/2 lb each). Thinking maybe I could pan fry them first. Then transfer them to the oven to finish cooking in the pomegranate glaze? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! 🙂

    1. HI! Yes, pan frying and then finishing in the oven sounds great. You might want to simmer the sauce on the stove before spoon over the salmon since it will not be in the oven too long. Simmering on the stove will help it thicken. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Happy Holiday’s ? 🙂

  9. Why can’t we print recipes anymore ? The old website gave you that option. On another note, your amazing!!!!! You should be so proud of yourself your love poors through your food. Sooo Grateful for you and your website. This website saves me sooo much time when I can’t tho m of what to make, sooo thank you. And w 3 teenagers I am cooking all the time. Much Love to u?❤️❤️????????

    1. Hi Eliza! The print button should be right under the last photo. Let me know if it still is not working for you! I am so glad you like my blog, this is so sweet! Thank you!

  10. Hi! I made this the other night and the salmon was delicious but the sauce in the roasting pan completely burnt. Did you ever have this issue?

    1. Hi! I have not had this issue, but my salmon might be smaller then the one you used. Was your large? Sorry for the trouble! Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you!
