Salmon filet is seared over high heat and served with a maple/mustard seed sauce.
4 (6-7-oz) center-cut salmon filet
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
3 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
1/4 cup chopped scallion
Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet until very hot.
1. Pat the fish dry, remove the skin and season both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Put the fish, skin (now skinless) side down and cook for about 4 minutes. Turn over and sear on the other side, another 3-4 minutes.
3. While the salmon is cooking, mix the water, mustard, maple syrup, garlic, mustard seeds and scallions together.
4. Remove the salmon and place on a covered plate. Cover to keep warm.
5. Remove the skillet from the heat for one minute. Return to the heat and pour in the mustard/maple mixture. Whisk the ingredients into the skillet and allow to reduce slightly.
Pour the sauce over the fish and serve.
