Pepper Encrusted Salmon
This is best on the grill, so the pepper coating creates a bit of a "crust." I usually just use my counter top grill, but it also works great on an outdoor grill. However, make sure to grease your grill grates because fish does tend to stick and makes a mess to get off.
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 tablespoons lemon juice
24 ounces salmon
1/2 tablespoon pepper or have a peppermill handy
4 tablespoons olive oil
1. Combine soy sauce, crushed garlic cloves, and lemon juice in a plastic bag. Add skinned salmon and marinate, refrigerated, for about 30 minutes.
2. Pat the salmon dry with paper towels and coat salmon, both sides, with ground pepper--you will use a lot of pepper, but don't worry! I just cover both sides liberally with freshly ground pepper.
