Roast Salmon with Whole-Grain-Mustard Crust Recipe

When chefs Ken Norris and Jennifer Quist open Riffle NW in Portland, Oregon, this spring, they'll focus on sustainable seafood like line-caught wild chinook salmon. "We use simple crusts so the fish stands out," says Norris.

Total: 20 Minutes

Ingredients

1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons minced chives
4 skin-on wild salmon fillets
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preparation

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.

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.

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.
