F&W's Marcia Kiesel coats fish with Dijon mustard amped up with dry mustard, then dips the fillets into mustard seeds and wheat germ to create a crust.

  1. 3 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
  2. 1 tablespoon yellow mustard seeds, crushed
  3. Four 6-ounce skinless salmon fillets
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
  7. 1 tablespoon canola oil
  1. In a shallow dish, combine the wheat germ and mustard seeds. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. In a bowl, blend the Dijon mustard with the dry mustard and spread it over the skinned side of the fillets. Dip the mustard side of the fillets in the wheat germ mixture until thickly coated.
  2. In a nonstick skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the fillets, crust side down, and cook over moderately high heat until browned and crisp, 3 minutes. Turn the fillets and cook over moderate heat until barely cooked in the center, 3 minutes longer. Transfer the salmon to plates and serve crust side up.

Suggested Pairing
