For the fresh herbs in olive oil

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 ounce cilantro roughly chopped steams and leaves (small clamshell package)
  • 1/2 ounce chives thinly sliced (small clamshell package)
  • 1 ounce parsley leaves roughly chopped (about a handful)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the salmon

  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon filet
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

For serving

  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tinfoil.
  • Combine all ingredient for fresh herbs in olive oil in a small bowl. Stir well. Set aside.
  • Place the salmon filet on the baking sheet and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper.
  • Bake the salmon for 8-10 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork and is cooked through (time will vary, but a good rule of thumb is to cook the fish 8-10 minutes per inch of thickness). I usually broil the salmon for the last 1-2 minutes so it gets a bit crispy on the outside. Remove from oven.
  • Top salmon with fresh herbs and olive oil. Sprinkle salmon with pomegranate arils.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.
