Rub sheet pan with the 2 teaspoons of oil and place
side of salmon in pan. Salt and pepper salmon. Set
Add coriander, fennel seed, cumin seed, star anise,
onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne pepper to a
blender. Turn blender on high and process until whole
spices become powder. With blender running, pour in 1/3
cup canola oil and blend until well combined. Stop
blender to brush down sides of container, if necessary.
Brush salmon with spice mixture. Allow salmon to sit
at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to the high broiler setting. Place
salmon in the oven 6-inches from broiler. Cook until
salmon reaches an internal temperature of 131 degrees F.
This will take approximately 15 minutes, but will vary
with different ovens. Remove from oven and let rest for
10 minutes, and then serve immediately. Note that the
internal temperature of the fish will a rise a little as
carry-over cooking occurs.
