SALMON with Whole Grain Mustard and Chive Crust

Roast Salmon with Whole Grain Mustard and Chive Crust

1/4 cup whole grain mustard
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons minced chives
2 8-ounce skin-on wild salmon fillets
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a small bowl, mix 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.
