Ingredients

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

Directions

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.
