    crispychick's Note:

    I bought a beautiful pomegranate at the store the other day and wanted to somehow incorporate it with the salmon I had to cook. My husband and I don't like salmon all that much but after last night I think we'll be eating it much more often! I think this glaze could work for many fish, even pork tenderloin and chicken breasts. I also think you could easily substitute cranberry juice for the pomegranate.

      I think I reduced the glaze a bit too much, but it still tasted good and complemented the salmon well.

      This recipe seemed to have an overpowering taste of balsamic vinegar. I increased the pomegranate juice to double, which affected the flavor only somewhat. The pomegranate flavor was very mild in this recipe which was kind of disappointing. Sorry about the bad review, but I don't think I'll be making this recipe again.
