Use a nice fruity type peppercorn such as Tellicherry in this recipe, freshly ground of course. A pinot noir pairs nicely with this.

ATTN: FANTASTIC salmon! A must make! The marinade is so very delicious yet so easy and simple. The sugar really adds a yummy hint of sweetness to the salmon. I was not happy with the selection of salmon steaks available at the market but they had some beautiful Coho Salmon filets so I purchased and used that. I was not sure as to the amount or weight as it is not listed. I used one pound. I also used whole peppercorns that I crushed rather than using a grinder in order to ensure a little bit larger pieces of pepper. The telicherry peppercorns suggested were a great idea. This is a fantastic recipe that made a simple yet stunning meal. Thank you Grafeetee! Made for PAC!
