Mustard & Brown Sugar Rubbed Salmon

I get Prevention magazine and Lois told me that there was a really good Salmon recipe in the latest issue, so I tried it for Cary. I'm not a real big Salmon (or fish) fan, but I actually thought this was quite good! (Very easy too)

Mustard & Brown Sugar Rubbed Salmon (From Prevention magazine)

2 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp mustard powder
4 salmon fillets (6 oz each), skin removed
1 tsp olive oil

1. Stir together sugar, salt, pepper, cumin, and mustard in small bowl. Unwrap fish and leave it on paper you bought it in, placing it so side that had skin is down. Press sugar mixture evenly onto fish.
2. Heat oil in large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. When hot, place fish rub-side down in pan. Cook until rub dissolves and darkens slightly (being careful not to burn), about 4 minutes. Flip fish and cook to medium doneness, about 1 minute.

The spice rub.
Olive oil in pan, notice I'm NOT using the kind of pan they said to....I would, but I don't have one. ;)

Fish fillets
Pat rub into the fish
Cook the side with the rub first
Flip it over after about 4 minutes and cook for another minute or so.

It looks pretty good, but I suspect it still tastes like fish. ;)
