Mustard and Brown Sugar Salmon (or pork)

Mustard and Brown Sugar Salmon (or pork)

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.
2. Press sugar mixture evenly onto fish.
3. Heat oil in large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat.
4. When hot, place fish 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.

I think this recipe is also great on pork but of course the cooking process is different. I would brown both sides of the pork chop then stick the cast iron skillet in the oven to complete cooking.
