What You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
pinch of red pepper, crushed
1 – 1 1/4 pound salmon fillet, skinless
A pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
In a spice grinder or small processor, combine the coriander seeds, mustard seeds and crushed red pepper. Pulse until spices are coarsely ground.
Season salmon with salt and pepper then brush with 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard and coat fish with freshly ground spices.
In a large, ovenproof skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add salmon, coated side down, and cook over high heat until slightly browned, or about 2-3 minutes. Next, carefully turn salmon over and transfer skillet to preheated oven and roast for about 6 minutes, or until just cooked through.
