How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large glass baking dish, blend 2 tablespoons of the olive oil with the mustard. Add the salmon fillets, turn to coat and refrigerate.

Step 2    

Preheat the oven to 500°. In a small saucepan, boil the Riesling over moderately high heat until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.

Step 3    

In a medium bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with 6 tablespoons of the olive oil. Whisk in the wine reduction, chives, basil, cilantro and Scotch bonnet. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4    

Melt the butter in a medium skillet. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat until softened and starting to brown, about 8 minutes. Place the baguette toasts on a baking sheet and top with the onion. Bake in the upper third of the oven for 1 minute.

Step 5    

Meanwhile, in each of two medium skillets, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil until shimmering. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and add 3 fillets to each skillet, skin side down. Cook over high heat until the skin is browned and crisp, about 4 minutes. Turn the fillets and cook over moderately high heat until an even pink throughout, about 5 minutes.

Step 6    

Spoon the chile-herb sauce onto plates. Top with the salmon fillets and serve with the onion toasts.
