Combine all ingredients together in a non-reactive bowl and mix together. Place salmon fillets in the marinade and marinate for 8 to 24 hours.

Cranberry Jalapeno Pomegranate Sauce:
3 cups of orange juice
1 pomegranate- seeded
2 cups fresh cranberries
2 minced jalapenos
2 cups 10x powdered sugar
3 ounces orange juice
2 tablespoons cornstarch

In a medium saucepan add the 3 cups of orange juice, pomegranate, jalapenos, cranberries and powdered sugar. Bring to a boil and let boil until the cranberries pop.
Mix the orange juice and cornstarch together and mix into the pot. Sauce will thicken in one minute.

Cook salmon in a preheated 350 degree oven for 7 minutes. Place salmon on a plate and ladle the sauce over the salmon and enjoy.
