    1. 1
      Combine pomegranate molasses and water, tomato juice, lemon juice and zest, lime juice, sea salt, spices, and honey in a bowl.
    2. 2
      In a saucepan heat a few tablepoons of olive oil. Add the scallions and garlic and saute over medium heat until softened, a few minutes. Add the juice mixture and bring to a boil. Taste the sauce: it should be both sweet and sour, add more honey if necessary. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, then set aside.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 450°F Get out a baking dish.
    4. 4
      Pat the fish fillets dry and sprinkle with sea salt, then rub flour on the fillets to coat on both sides.
    5. 5
      Heat a few spoonfuls of olive oil in a wide pan. Fry the fillets, you want the outside of the fillet to be "sealed" but the inside will not be done.
    6. 6
      Place fillets in the baking dish. Pour the sauce over the fish and place in the oven. Bake 7-9 minutes, until the fish is just done. Serve immediately, with Bahraini Sweet Rice (Muhammar) or bread.

      Excellent dish! I struggled a bit to get the right amount of honey, maybe my lemon was too large or the pomegranate molasses too tart (it is not sweetened and quite tart). Actually I ended up with 2 1/2 tablespoons honey, and it still was more on the tart side than sweet-tart, but that was absolutely perfect to go with Bahraini Sweet Rice (Muhammar). Thanks for sharing! :)
