Seared Cod with Pomegranate Reduction

by Joanne on October 19, 2009

The folks at POM Wonderful have done it again. They came out with two terrific flavors.  POM-Kiwi and POM-Mango.  I drank about a third of the bottle of the kiwi flavor and was blown away. It was great.  I thought I’d share the rest with Ted in a great sauce for dinner.  I made this POM Reduction to pair with seared Cod fish which was finished in the oven.  

Sorry about the miniature photos, I thought I had set the transfer to “Original Size”.   I think  my home computer is possessed and does what it wants just to annoy me. 


An easy meal with a good healthy sauce.

  • 2 TBS Canola Oil
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup Dried – Sun Dried Tomatoes, Crushed
  • 1 1/2 lbs Cod or other thick white fish
  • 2/3 – 3/4 bottle of POM Wonderful
  • Lemon Juice
  • 2 TBS Flour
  • Salt and Pepper

DSC_1625 DSC_1725Pour just a little POM on the bottom of a pan to marinate the fish.  You need enough POM left to top the fish and also to use for your sauce.  You should begin with about 2/3rds of a bottle.   Top the rinsed and cleaned fish with lemon and a little more POM. Salt and pepper and let rest for 15 minutes.

DSC_1730 Chop half an onion.

DSC_1731 Mince one clove of garlic. 

 DSC_1733Add a handful of dried sun dried tomatoes, crushed. 

DSC_1734 Heat 2 TBS Canola Oil in pan on high heat.  Add the onion and saute 1 minute. Add the garlic and dried tomatoes and saute one minute.  Add the fish and cook about 3 minutes per side.

Preheat oven to 375 F.  Discard the marinade that was used for the fish (if using the same dish to insert into the oven, wipe it out). Place the seared fish in the dish and finish in the oven for about 6-8 minutes until it is cooked through.

While the fish is finishing up in the oven, make your reduction.

DSC_1735 Leave the bits of fish, onions, garlic tomato which stuck to the bottom of the pan in there after removing the fish.  Set it back on medium high and when hot again, add the POM and scrap the bottom of the pan to incorporate all those bits of flavor.  Bring to a boil.

DSC_1736 Add 2 TBS flour and cook, stirring constantly until thickened, about 2 – 3 minutes.  Depending on how much POM you used.

Plate fish.  Top with POM reduction.  Enjoy with a nice hearty vegetable such as cauliflower.


A trip to the repair shop.

We took the Subaru in to be repaired.  That deer sure did a job on it. FSCN2045

Luckily Ted was okay. The deer ran off so here is hoping he/she was okay too.
