Spice Rubbed Salmon

Spice Rubbed Salmon
From a la di stasio

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 8-10 minutes

Serves 4


2 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp mustard seeds
1 tbsp white or maple sugar (I used brown sugar)
2 tsp sea salt
4 salmon fillets
2 tbsp olive oil

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F/220°C

2. Coarsely grind coriander and mustard seeds in a coffee grinder or with a mortar and pestle.

3. Mix the spices, sugar, salt & pepper on a plate or wide bowl and coat the salmon fillets. Let the spices infuse the fish for a few minutes.

4. In an oven-proof skillet (one that can sustain high heat), heat the oil over medium heat on top of the stove. Brown fillets on top and bottom for 1-2 minutes per side. Take care not to burn the spice crust.

5. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast for 5-8 minutes or until the fish is cooked.

Josée suggests serving with Mashed Potatoes and braised beet salad (also in her book), a green salad or her warm potato salad (in her book and looks very tasty…must try some). I served it with Stuffed Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes.

I love salmon with corriander but haven't tried with sugar and mustard seeds. Sounds great.

This sounds awesome! Salmon is probably my favorite fish, and I'm always looking for new ways to fix it.
