4 (4-6 oz) salmon fillets with skin
½ c pomegranate juice
¼ c red wine vinegar
2 T honey
½ c avocado oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 c pomegranate seeds
1 T chopped chives
Lightly coat salmon fillets with salt and pepper and set aside.
Mix pomegranate juice through salt and pepper in a small bowl with a whisk. Add seeds and chives and then divide mixture in half. Refrigerate the rest.
Coat fillets with ½ of the mixture thoroughly in a small glass baking pan by turning fillets over, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
On a hot outdoor grill, place salmon fillets, cover and cook for approximately 1 minute. Continue to turn fillets and cook for approximately 4 more minutes or until done. Discard marinade used for cooking.
Serve with reserved marinade and pair with Endive Radish Love Boats and Rainbow Quinoa. Makes 4 servings.
*Endive Radish Love boats
3 small heads endive lettuce
1 8 oz whipped cream cheese
1/3 c finely minced radishes
2 T miced fresh chives
1 ½ t lemon-pepper
1 pkg alfalfa sprouts
Peel leaves from cores of endive. Wash, pat dry and store in a plastic bag in refrigerator. Combine cream cheese, radishes, chives and lemon pepper with a fork until blended. Put into a sandwich bag and snip the edge to allow for easy application of mixture onto leaves.
Place 3-4 sprouts inside each endive leaf, with sprouts inside each leaf near the top. Carefully pipe 1 T in a zig zag pattern down the center of each leaf covering stems of the sprouts. Chill until ready to serve. Makes approximately 2 dozen.
1 c tri-colored quinoa (We used the Don Lorenzo brand)
2 c chicken broth
Bring quinoa and stock to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 15-20 minutes.
Use an ice cream scoop to put on plate.
