The pomegranate vinaigrette serves a dual purpose in this easy grilled salmon dish. It is a marinade and a dressing that is drizzled over the finished dish, which can be eaten as an entree or over lettuce for a main-course salad. Eastern Europeans are extremely fond of salmon and pomegranate, a fruit they inherited from their Middle Eastern and Mediterranean neighbors, and which some Eastern European regions cultivate.

Makes 4 servings of Easy Grilled Salmon with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1 recipe Pomegranate Vinaigrette (see below)
  • 4 (4- to 6-ounce) boneless, skinless salmon fillets, rinsed and patted dry
  • Romaine lettuce (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl, prepare the pomegranate vinaigrette. Remove 1/2 cup to another container and refrigerate.

  2. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper, if desired. Lay them in a 13x9-inch glass or ceramic pan and pour over remaining vinaigrette. Turn fillets to coat with vinaigrette. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at leat 20 minutes but no longer than 3 hours.

  3. Meanwhile, heat a large, indoor tabletop grill. Place salmon on the hot grill, cover and cook for 1 minutes. Give fillets a quarter turn to get crosshatch grill marks and continue to cook for 3-4 more minutes or until salmon is done to your liking. Usually it takes 5 minutes per 1/2" of thickness. Discard vinaigrette used for marinating.

  4. Serve with or without greens, drizzling reserved vinaigrette over the fillets.
