Roast Salmon With Whole-Grain-Mustard Crust
1/4 Cup whole-grain mustard
1 Tbl extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 Tbl minced chives
4 Eight -ounce skin-on wild salmon fillets
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 400 and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum
foil. In a small bowl, stir together the mustard, olive oil and chives.~
2. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place them skin
side down on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the mustard mixture over
the tops of the fillets. Roast the fish for 6 minutes.
3. Preheat the broiler. Broil the salmon 6 inches from the heat for
about 4 minutes, until the mustard crust is browned and the salmon is
almost cooked through. Using a spatula, carefully slide the salmon
fillets off their skins and transfer to plates; leave the skin on, if
desired. Serve immediately.
|This was the mustard I used. I think the important thing is to get a mustard |
with the the visible mustard seeds!
