2.5 – 3lbs salmon, boneless/skinless
1 tsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh basil, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh oregano, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
2 tbl blackening spice 
4 tsp spicy brown Dijon mustard 
4 oz water 
8 oz heavy whipping cream
1 tsp blackening spice 

Season both side of the salmon with 2 tbl of the blackening spice.  Mix all chopped herbs together and place aside for later use.  Evenly spread mustard over the top of salmon. Reserve 1 tbl of the herbs. Evenly sprinkle the rest of the herbs over the salmon on top of the Dijon mustard.  Place the salmon inside a baking pan.  Pour the water around the salmon (be careful not to pour water over the salmon and rinse off the herbs).  Bake in a 350- degree oven for approx. 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. In a non-stick pan add cream, reserved herbs, and 1 tsp of blackening spice.  Stir constantly as the sauce thickens.  Once the sauce is thick enough to coat the spoon, turn off the heat.  Remove the salmon from the oven. Top with shrimp and/crab. Pour the sauce over the salmon and shrimp/crab.
