DIRECTIONS

  • Marinate the fish in 2 t olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Let sit for about 20 minutes while you prepare the glaze.
  • Place the pomegranate seeds in a strainer set over a small bowl.
  • With the fork or the back of a spoon, press the seeds against the strainer, forcing the liquid into the bowl.
  • Place the juice, lemon zest, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce in a small non-reactive saucepan and cook over medium heat.
  • While the glaze is reducing, get a cast iron skillet pretty hot and place fish skin side down (without moving) and let sear for about 1-2 minutes.
  • Turn the fish over and while it's cooking on the other side, carefully peel away and discard skin.
  • Let cook for about 4-5 minutes or until a nice golden brown color.
  • Flip the fish over one last time and let sear on the side you removed the skin from.
  • Cooking times vary depending on how thick your cut of fish is, and how done you prefer your fish.
  • Remove to a plate and let sit.
  • Put the 1 T of butter in the glaze and stir until just melted.
  • Drizzle over fish.
