Salmon is not only delicious but extremely healthy. This version with whole grain mustard is simply wonderful.
- Fresh salmon – whatever fillet or steaks will serve your required number of servings.
- Whole grain mustard – 1 Tbl per salmon steak (and/or enough to cover fillets/steaks with a thick layer)
- Salt and pepper
- vegetable oil
- Chopped chives or parsley for garnish if desired
Season the salmon with salt and pepper and top with the whole grain mustard making a thick layer covering the entire piece. Preheat an oven on grill setting to 195c (380f).
Heat an oven proof skillet over high heat until very hot. Add just enough cooking oil to cover the bottom. When the oil is very hot place the fish skin side down into the pan. Sizzle for 3-4 minutes to fry the skin.
Place the whole pan in the preheated oven and cook for approx. 15 minutes depending on thinness just until done. Garnish with chives or parsley and serve with a nice rice pilaf. I also included grilled asparagus in my most recent effort.
