Pepper-Seared Alaska Salmon with Horseradish Sauce
Salmon seared with a cracked pepper coating comes out moist and spicy. The horseradish sauce adds some extra kick.
9 lb. Alaska salmon fillets
Salt, as needed
6 tbsp. Cracked black peppercorns
Horseradish sauce (see recipe)
1 1⁄2 cups sour cream
1 1⁄2 cups plain non-fat yogurt
6 tbsp. prepared horseradish
1⁄4 cup each minced parsley, and minced chives
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. lemon zest
1 1⁄2 tsp. salt
1. Per order, season salmon with salt and sprinkle with 3⁄4 tsp. cracked pepper over both sides of fish, pressing it lightly into fish.
2. Sear salmon in lightly oiled heavy skillet over high heat for 1-2 min. on each side, or until golden brown. Reduce heat and cook until just cooked through. Plate with 2 tbsp. horseradish sauce.
Whisk together all ingredients until well combined and refrigerate until ready to use.
