Dry Sugar Rub:
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 Tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 Tablespoon paprika
1/2 Tablespoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
Dash of cinnamon
4 to 6 skinless Alaska Salmon fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh or thawed
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1/4 to 1/3 cup hot Chinese-style or Dijon-style mustard, if desired
Blend all ingredients for Dry Sugar Rub. Generously coat one side of each Alaska Salmon fillet with mixture.
Heat oil in large heavy pan over medium-high heat. Carefully place salmon fillets in pan, seasoned side down. Cook about 2 minutes to sear; turn fillets over. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking 6 to 8 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
Serve salmon with mustard, if desired.
