1 (810 pound) salmon, cut in half, head and tail removed, filleted and deboned, cleaned and patted dry
2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste

Tartar sauce:

3/4 cup Mayonnaise
1 small onion, peeled and finely minced
2 medium dill pickles, minced (or 1/4 cup dill relish)
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon dried dill weed
2 teaspoons sugar

Prepare the Salmon:

Preheat broiler, placing the top rack four inches from the flame. Line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Fit both fillets side by side on the sheet. Sprinkle all dry ingredients on the fish. Drizzle honey on fillets.

Place one tablespoon mustard on each fillet and rub in the mustard and all other ingredients.

Place cookie sheet on top oven rack and cook five minutes or until the honey on surface of fish begins to caramelize.

Lower temperature to 400 and continue cooking for another 15 minutes or until the fillet, at its thickest point, no longer appears raw (or dark orange) when probed with a fork. Remove from oven immediately.

Prepare the Tartar Sauce:

Combine all ingredients in a glass jar, seal tightly with screw-on lid.

Shake vigorously until mixture is uniform. Serve cold.
