  • Using a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, grind the peppercorns, chopped garlic, lime zest, and salt until the peppercorns are finely ground. Rub salmon fillets with olive oil, then place onto the prepared pan, skin side down. Rub spice mixture onto top of salmon fillets.

  • Broil until the salmon is flaky and no longer pink in the center, 10 to 15 minutes. Drizzle with soy sauce and serve.

Very easy and tasty. Unfortunately, when I broiled it as instructed, the coating started to burn after about 5 minutes. I turned off the broiler and allowed the salmon to finish in the hot oven. Next time I will bake it in a 400 degree oven the entire time. I will definitely make it again though. Read More

This simple and delicious marinade is great! I used a little extra garlic and pepper to taste and added 1tsp sesame seeds too. I combined my spices with the oil to marinade instead of applying separately. It was a hit at Easter dinner and the recipe was asked for;) Read More

This turned out really good. I thought the lime seemed a little odd but it worked perfectly. This had the perfect amount of heat and salt. I did add some dill because I typically always do with salmon. It definitely bumped the flavor up some but I don't think it was completely necessary either. This is one I will definitely make again.
