1 tsp peppercorns 3 g

1/4 tsp salt 1 g
300 g salmon fillet
2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL

Before you start

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


  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. Heat the 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.
