Ingredients

1 tsp peppercorns 3 g
1 tbsp coriander seeds 4 g
1 tbsp mustard seeds 10 g
1 tbsp celery seeds 9 g
1/4 tsp salt 2 g
300 g salmon fillet
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 230°C/450°F. Cut the salmon into pieces of comparable size, as per the number of servings required. Set aside.
  2. Coarsely grind the peppercorns, coriander, mustard, and celery seeds, using a pepper mill if available. Otherwise, place the spices in a plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin. Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish, add the salt, then coat the salmon pieces on both sides with the spice mixture.
  3. Melt the butter and oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon and sauté until the crust is golden, about 1-2 min per side, taking care not to let it burn.
  4. Transfer the fillets to a baking dish, place it in the middle of the oven, and bake for about 7-8 min for a 2 to 2,5 cm thick fillet. Since the cooking time depends on the thickness of the fillets and the actual temperature of the oven, it is important to check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through. Serve on the warmed plates.

Very tasty - and the pepper adds a nice kick of heat. Feel free to use a different mix of spices and experiment. We liked this way of cooking the salmon in the pan and then finishing in the oven - it gave a nice crust and a moist finish to the fish.

We all enjoyed this recipe, the crunchy crust and tender fish go well together. A good recipe for people on low-salt diet. Leave out salt (or reduce to a sprinkle) and there is still lots of flavour from the crusty spices.Works well with trout filets as well.

Variation: I have not tried this exact recipe, but it seems a little bland as some of the French reviews have stated. I have tried something very similar, but far easier and tastier I think. Spoon a nice spreadable portion of dijon mustard (this will give it tang!)over each fillet and top with steak spice(about as much as in photo, but one side only). On a baking sheet lined with foil and lightly brushed with olive oil, broil (on high and within 6 inches from top) fillets for 6-8 minutes. This is also excellent done on the grill, however you must wrap fillets in foil.
