An easy to make salmon recipe that hits on sweet and savory notes. I served it with roasted carrots but you can make any roasted vegetable


  • 2 6 oz salmon filets
  • 1/4 cup Pereg Natural Sweet Chili Panko bread crumbs OR 1/4 cup Panko mixed with 1/2 tsp chile powder
  • 1 TBS mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Pereg Natural Hawaij for Coffee OR a mix of 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp cloves, and 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1 TBS canola oil
  • 2 cups cooked sticky rice or jasmine rice
  • 1 medium apple cut into small dice
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1 TBS fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • This is a good time to prepare your roasted vegetable, whatever you choose. I made roasted carrot slices. They cooked while the oven was preheating and with the fish finishing.
  • Pat the salmon filets dry and sprinkle with salt
  • If you are not using the Pereg Hawaij mix together the 1/4 tsp each of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cardamom.
  • Add the spices/spice mix to the mayonnaise and stir to combine
  • Put the Pereg Sweet Chili panko in a small bowl. If not using, mix the regular panko and chili powder together. Set aside
  • Heat a medium, oven proof fry pan over medium heat and add the canola oil
  • Divide the mayo mix in half. Use each half to coat the salmon filets top and bottom. Do this one at a time and then coat the salmon in the panko bread crumbs.
  • Place the coated salmon filets in the hot pan and cook for 2 minutes until the panko is just brown. Turn over and cook for 2 minutes
  • Remove the pan to the oven to finish cooking the salmon. Time will depend on how thick your filets are, anywhere from 10 – 20 minutes. Watch so that the bottom does not burn. Mine took 10 minutes.
  • While the fish is in the oven mix the honey and lemon with a pinch of salt. Add the diced apples.

To serve: Place 1 cup of rice on the plate, top with 1 salmon filet and 1/2 of apple mixture and 1/2 of pomegranate seeds. Add roasted vegetable.


My photos only show one portion because that is all I made but I have doubled the ingredients so that the recipe makes two servings

I cooked the rice in an electric pressure cooker. I started it at the beginning of preparation and it was ready at serving time
