Lectin Free Gourmet Pomegranate Molasses Glazed Salmon

Pomegranate is a P-dox approved sugar that classes up any fish or poultry dish. This dark, syrupy molasses is like one of my old favorite candies — Sour Patch Kids. First it‘s sour, then it’s sweet. And man is it intensely delicious. A tiny bit goes a long way.


Dr. G. lists POW pomegranate molasses on his Amazon faves. But you can find it at most Middle Eastern markets or just make your own. It’s a simple reduction of 100% pomegranate juice. Boil it down until it becomes very thick, dark and syrupy. Let’s get to the recipe.


The Recipe

Pomegranate Molasses Glazed Salmon

(2) 6 oz. Wild Caught Salmon Filets

4 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/4 t Salt

1/4 t Pepper

2 T Pomegranate Molasses

2 T Crushed Pistachios

2 C Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch Salad Mix


Salad Dressing

1 T Pomegranate Infused Red Wind Vinegar

1 T EVOO

1 T Dijon Mustard

1 T Raw Local Honey


Instructions:


Step 1: Tossed the Salad

In a medium bowl, put 2 handfuls of the salad mix. In A small bowl add all the salad dressing ingredients and whisk together to emulsify. Pie over the salad and toss. Plate equal portions on two plates.


Step 2: Pan Sear the Salmon

Dry your salmon filets well with a paper towel to prevent spatter. Lightly season the pretty sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil on medium high until thin and glistening. Lay salmon filets in pan, skin or ugly side down. Sear untouched for about 4 minutes until you get a nice crisp. Reduce heat to medium. Flip the salmon filets and sear another 4 minutes. Remove from pan and plate on top of the dressed salad.


Step 3: Glaze & Top the Salmon

Drizzle 1 tablespoon of pomegranate molasses on each filet. Sprinkle with crushed pistachios.
