Mustard seed Salmon with broccoli rabe

A perfect weekday dinner and healthy also. I love salmon and the skin crispy is also yummy. This is very easy and almost does not need a recipe.
Salmon filets
Mustard Seeds
Broccoli rabe
red onion (I usually use garlic, but didn't have any, so I used red onion
olive oil
Make a crust of mustard seeds on top of the salmon fillet. Heat a heavy bottom pan and add the salmon flesh side (the side that has the mustard seeds) down and cook for about 4 minutes, when browned slightly turn over and cook for another 5 minutes.
Broccoli rabe:
Clean and blanch the broccoli rabe for just a minute or two, drain the rabe. In a heavy bottom pan, add the red onion and olive and saute till soft. Add the rabe and cook for a few minutes, salt to taste and your done.

  1. Sandra, do the seeds get bitter if too toasty? I've never used mustard seeds before except in pickling. Also, do you have an opinion on salmon fillets vs. steaks? Maria D.
