Mustard Encrusted Salmon

This is something of a variation on the traditional chicken fried steak recipes of the south. The mustard flavoring is very mild, and your salmon will be crispy on the outside and moist and tender inside. Add more cayenne if you like a little more spice, or even some wasabi powder. Delicious served with a side of cooked greens or over a bed of lightly dressed salad greens.
  • 4 salmon filets (6 to 8 oz each), skin and pin bones removed, rinsed and patted dry
  • ¼ cup flour mixed with ¾ cup water to make a very thin paste
  • ½ cup flour mixed with 3 tbsp dry mustard, 1 tsp cayenne pepper and ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 to 3 tbsp olive oil

Dip filets in flour/water mixture, then dredge in flour/mustard mixture to coat. Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet until hot. Add salmon and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Yields: 4 servings
