Keyword: mustard, salmon, sesame seeds
Servings: 2 portions


  • 2 salmon fillets skinless
  • 4 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


  • Season the salmon with a pinch of salt and spread the mustard evenly over the fillets.
  • Place the sesame seeds in a shallow dish. Gently press the salmon (already coated with mustard) into sesame seeds to coat evenly on all sides. Aim for a complete sesame seed crust, and expect some seeds to fall.
  • In a non-stick pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat and carefully place the fillets. Start by cooking the top and bottom of the salmon for 3 to 5 minutes, turning with extreme care. Do the same with the smallest parts of the fillets, cooking for approximately 2 minutes more on each side.
  • Remove gently from the pan and it's ready to serve.


Notes from the dietitian: Sesame seeds are low FODMAP, but you should avoid eating more than 6 tbsp (2,3oz) per meal, as they become high in oligo-fructans. Mustard is also low FODMAP, but it is a important to read the label to verify that it doesn't contain any high FODMAP ingredients such as garlic, onions, etc.
