Mustard & Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

I like fish. Only I don't like my fish to taste "fishy". That is why I usually stay away from salmon because it tends to be a bit strong in flavor to me. HOWEVER, I love this particular recipe for salmon. I had to change it a bit because I was out of a few ingredients but it tasted almost exactly the same as the original. If you have been avoiding salmon because you don't like strong fish, this is a good way to introduce it to your diet.

2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar ( I used Sucanat)
1 1/2 Tsp. Real Sea Salt
1/2 Tsp. Black Pepper
1/2 Tsp. Ground Cumin
1/4 Tsp. Dry Mustard (I was out of this so I used the same amount Turmeric)
4 Salmon Fillets, skin removed (approx. 6 oz each. I have used bigger fillets and the rub was enough to cover them too)
Olive oil

Mix together the brown sugar (or sucanat), salt, pepper, cumin and mustard in a bowl and set aside. Lay out salmon fillets and put the seasoning mixture evenly over the top of the fillets. Heat a little olive oil in a cast iron skillet and place the fish in, seasoned side down. Cook until the rub dissolves and darkens (about 4 minutes). Flip fish and cook until done. It's that simple. And yummy! Even the kids love this recipe.
