  • 4 salmon fillets (about 150g each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • FOR THE POMEGRANATE GLAZE
  • 100ml pomegranate juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • A pinch of salt
  • FOR THE FENNEL SLAW
  • 1 large fennel bulb, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Let's Cook!

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 200°C (392°F).

Step 2

Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper, and brush them with olive oil. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Step 3

In a small saucepan, whisk together the pomegranate juice, honey, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer and reduce until the mixture thickens into a glaze.

Step 4

Brush the salmon fillets with the pomegranate glaze and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

Step 5

While the salmon is baking, prepare the fennel slaw by combining the sliced fennel, red onion, and chopped dill in a mixing bowl. Dress with lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.

Step 6

To serve, place a generous helping of fennel slaw on each plate, top with a salmon fillet, and garnish with pomegranate seeds.
