4 Salmon Filets; about 7 ounces each
1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 500 degrees
Season the filets on both sides with salt and pepper.
Spread Dijon Mustard liberally on the flesh side of each filet.
Sprinkle bread crumbs onto the mustard, using your fingers to press it into the mustard.
Heat a large, ovenproof saute pan (preferably non-stick) on high and add the vegetable oil.
When the oil begins to smoke, add the salmon, mustard side down. Lower flame to medium.
Sear for two minutes until the mustard and bread crumbs form a crust. Then turn and sear for another minute.
Transfer pan to oven and cook for 4 minutes.
Remove from oven, place on warmed platter and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.
