    1. 1
      Up to 24 hours before serving, place the salmon fillets in a nonreactive pan. In a food processor, combine and finely chop the ginger, peppercorns and cilantro. Roll the salmon fillets in the mixture, cover with plastic wrap or another plate and refrigerate overnight.
    2. 2
      Combine the sugar and pepper on a plate or in a shallow bowl.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a skillet.
    4. 4
      Scrape the excess ginger mixture from the fish and discard.
    5. 5
      Press the flesh (top) side of the salmon fillets into the sugar-pepper mixture and sauté them, seasoned side down, to caramelize the sugar, about 2 to 3 minutes.
    6. 6
      Quickly, before the sugar burns, pour the soy sauce and orange juice into the pan, swirling and stirring well to dissolve the caramelized bits.
    7. 7
      Turn the salmon skin side down. Lower the heat to medium. Cover the pan and let the salmon finish cooking for 5 to 8 minutes longer, or until it is cooked medium rare.
    8. 8
      Transfer the salmon fillets to a clean towel to drain before serving.

      Great tasting and so easy to make too! Next time I'll let it marinade longer than 2 hours. Served with Iron Chef Orange Ginger Sauce. YUM! Thanks Kate!
