6th of October, 2011

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

What makes this dish not a recipe in the strict sense of the term is, I don’t go and make 2 quarts of chutney just so I can use some of it to make a salmon dish. Rather, apples being plentiful in the fall, I make a large batch of...

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

20th of September, 2011

Salmon-Pomegranate-Sauce-LevanaCooks

Sweet-and-sour combinations are a great Sephardi favorite, and work beautifully with this salmon with pomegranate sauce. The onions caramelize and contribute a sweet counterpoint to the vinegar. Another quick and delicious dish, just the way I like it—one pan, one step. I hope you think of pomegranate juice more often...
