Wow wow - just finished eating this and had to jump straight on to comment.. I swapped in Agave nectar for the honey and actually used slightly more salmon on the OHs portion.. Loved by OH also so will become a firm fave..

Just got into regularly eating fresh pomegranate! Not easy to chew seeds,but you do get a luscious sweet fruit taste,and tops for vitamins and antioxidants!
