In small skillet, combine cumin, fennel, mustard and coriander seeds. Dry cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasion­ally, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Using mortar and pestle, crush roasted spices. In bowl, combine spice mix with turmeric, pepper and butter.

Place salmon fillet on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Cover with spice blend, pressing down gently to adhere. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours. 

Remove salmon from refrigerator, remove plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake until fish flakes easily with fork, 18 to 20 minutes. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and refrigerated for up to 2 days or frozen for up to 1 month.) Serve with lime wedges and chipotle mayonnaise, if using. 

Test kitchen tip

You can easily substitute with Pacific salmon, such as sockeye, or any wild salmon available at your local fish market.
