Mustard Salmon

Salmon is a staple in healthy eating. But, as with any staple in our diet, it can get a little monotonous despite being so naturally delicious. Mix things up with Dijon or brown mustard and then liberally coat with this unique spice blend. A sizzling hot sear on both sides adds even more intense flavor to this dish!


  1. Combine rub ingredients.
  2. Coat each salmon fillet with brown mustard.
  3. Season each fillet with rub on both sides.
  4. Heat avocado oil over medium-high heat.
  5. Add salmon to sauté pan and sear on each side for 2 minutes. Reduce heat and cook for an additional 3–5 minutes or until fish is cooked through to your liking.
