Tevzi (georgian Poached Fish with Pomegranate Sauce)

1 Whole (3- to 4-pound) pan-dressed fish, such as red snapper, sea bass, or trout
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
5 tb Butter, melted, or vegetable oil
1 c Pomegranate sauce, about (recipe below)
1/4 c Pomegranate seeds or chopped fresh parsley for garnish


Pomegranate Sauce:
4 md Pomegranates (about 8 ounces each) (up to 5)
2 tb Minced yellow onion
2 tb Chopped fresh basil

1 Clove garlic, minced

Preheat the oven to 375-degrees F. Set aside a baking dish large enough to fit the fish.

Sprinkle the fish with the salt and pepper and place in the baking dish. Drizzle with the butter or oil. Add enough water to almost cover the fish.
