Recipe: Grilled Salmon with Pink Peppercorn Rub

Alas, all of our content, pictures etc. must fit within 144 pages. That means a few things are getting cut. This recipe is one of them. It is a simple and tasty way to cook salmon, so we hope you will try it. It comes from our friends Greg and Amy from the F/V Angie, a troll tender in Southeast Alaska.

Grilled Salmon with Pink Peppercorn Rub

4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
2 teaspoons sea salt
4 tablespoons crushed pink peppercorns
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Sprinkle the salmon fillets each with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. In a small bowl, mix the crushed peppercorns, brown sugar, and olive oil together. Rub the peppercorn mixture evenly over the top of the fillets.
            Heat the grill to medium heat. Cook the salmon fillets skin side down for approximately 8 minutes, until nearly opaque in the center. Peek inside the fish, and remove the salmon fillets just before done, since the fish will continue to cook for several minutes once away from the heat.
