A spice rub of Szechuan peppercorns and garlic put a new spin on simple broiled salmon. Use wild Alaskan troll-caught salmon for best flavor.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Szechuan peppercorns
  • 2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon grated lime zest
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 (6 ounce) fillets salmon
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. 2 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.
  3. 3 Broil until the salmon is flaky and no longer pink in the center, 10 to 15 minutes. Drizzle with soy sauce and serve.

  2. 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;)
  3. 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 - Read more ...
