The recipe is super simple. The only small effort involved is grinding the pepper. I use a coffee grinder for this, which makes it easy--you just have to clean out the grinder well before putting it back into coffee service.
SALMON AU POIVRE
adapted from Simply Delicious (a WeightWatchers cookbook)
1 lb. salmon fillets
2 T. fresh or bottled lemon juice
1 large clove of garlic, minced (minced garlic from a jar is also fine)
1/2 t. salt
3 T. coarsely ground black pepper
Place the salmon in a shallow ceramic or glass dish (not metal). Add the lemon juice, garlic, and salt, turning the salmon to coat both sides. Let stand about 5 minutes.
On a plate about the size of a salmon fillet, spread out the pepper. Lightly press the salmon into the pepper, coating both sides.
Spray a non-stick skillet with olive oil spray and set over medium heat. Add salmon and cook about 4-5 minutes each side, or until done the way you like it. (I used a George Foreman grill, cooking for a little under 4 minutes.)
I served this with oven-roasted potatoes and corn salad--great meal! I'll post recipes for those later.
