Basic Pomegranate Marinade Recipe



I have two basic pomegranate marinades. This second one is fantastic on salmon! The maple brings out the woodsy flavors if you cook it on a cedar plank.

There are tons of chili sauces on the market and pomegranate molasses can vary greatly in quality. Because I find it most consistent, my favorite brand of pomegranate molasses is Indo-European and my favorite chili sauce is Lee Kum Kee's Guilin Chili Sauce which is spicy but not too sharp.

Ingredients

1/4 cup pomegranate molasses
1 Tablespoon oil, optional
1/2-1 teaspoon Asian chili garlic sauce, any kind you prefer
