Pan-Roasted Salmon With Herb Crust


  • 4 8-oz. fillets of fresh salmon
  • 1 Tbs. Creole mustard
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh chives or green onions
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • Salt and white pepper


After washing and patting dry the fish fillets, coat them with a light layer of the mustard, then with a mixture of the fresh herbs and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.

Use two skillets. Heat the olive oil in each skillet and sear the exterior of the fish, two fillets at a time, about a minute per side.

Pour 1/2 cup of fish stock or water into each pan around the fish, and put the skillets into the preheated 400-degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
