This simple yet radically sophisticated salmon recipe gets plenty of flavor with pomegranate syrup, fresh garlic and cilantro. The whole thing comes together in less than 30 minutes.
Note: Pomegranate syrup (also known as pomegranate mollasses) is made by simmering pomegranate juice until it’s concentrated into a syrup. It is popular in the Mediterranean area, especially Turkey. Pomegranate syrup/molasses lasts indefinitely and is not prone to spoiling.
Pomegranate molasses contains antioxidants, mainly vitamin C, that are beneficial to your immune system.
