Pomegranate Balsamic Glazed Salmon with Sweet Potatoes and Veggies

The first meal I made for my family was a fancy glazed salmon dish with mashed sweet potatoes and steamed mixed vegetables that turned out a lot better than I had anticipated. It was a bit ambitious for my first cooking attempt in months but somehow was delicious.

So that is not my photo but its pretty close to what I served.

I got the recipe for the salmon from

and then just improvised the rest. My mum made the mashed sweet potatoes. The glaze was a little improvised as well because we used what we already had. We chose a pomegranate glaze because my dad had bought pomegranate-açai juice—for a sparkling wine spritzer drink that was his contribution to the dinner party—and we used dark cherry balsamic vinegar from the cupboard. So the glaze was all kinds of fruity.

I served this meal to my parents and my best friend Cam and her mum, who we had over for dinner that night. Michelle brought a bottle of red wine by a winery called Hendry.

It was delicious (and expensive), of course.
