*For your reference a 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds are low in FODMAPs. Anything higher become moderate to high in FODMAPs.
Low-FODMAP Sweet and Spicy Glazed Salmon & Pomegranate Salad
- Add all glaze ingredients in a medium-sized shallow bowl and stir to combine. Place salmon fillet in bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. After first 30 minutes flip salmon over.
- Add all salad dressing ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and stir to combine. Remove 1 tablespoon of pomegranate seeds and set aside in a small bowl. Add in salad greens to medium-sized bowl and toss to coat.
- When salmon is done marinating, preheat boiler. Transfer salmon fillet to a rimmed baking sheet. Lightly season with sea salt (or option to forgo salt to keep sodium levels down). Brush with half of glaze. Place fillet under broiler, and broil 4 inches from heat for about 3 minutes, until fillet begins to brown. Use remaining glaze to brush fillet and broil for about 3 minutes longer, or until fish is just cooked through.
- Place salad greens with dressing on a plate. Transfer fillet on top of greens. Spoon over 1 tablespoon reserved pomegranate seeds. Serve with brown rice or quinoa. Option to not use salad greens and toss dressing with rice or quinoa and add in cooked or roasted low-FODMAP vegetable such as carrots, red bell pepper or eggplant.
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
