1. Sea Bass with Pomegranate Reduction Sauce by Nechama Norman
At our photo shoot, Esti (the photographer), who is not a fish lover, kept taking little coffee breaks to sneak another sample of this recipe. She also had anyone who was in her house that day sample a piece. I knew it had really hit home when I got a text from Esti that night asking for the ingredients ASAP because she was in the store. She also made sure to let the store owner know that he would need to put in a bigger order of Pom juice because everyone had to make this recipe. Thanks, Mom, for another great hit!

My family loves pomegranate in any shape or form. I try to use their favorite ingredients when making a fish recipe to encourage them to eat more fish. I made this for them a few months back, and they loved it.
