Stir in the mustard seeds and press on to the skinned side of the salmon fillets. Line a baking sheet with foil and drizzle with the oil. Place the salmon on top and bake in the oven for 10–15 mins. Leave to cool completely then slice each piece into 3, carefully holding the topping in place as you slice.
