Ingredients

30-45 mL (2-3 tbsp) mixed peppercorns
4 salmon steaks, each weighing about 170 g (6 oz)
  Juice of 2 limes

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Crush the peppercorns coarsely using a mortar and pestle, then sprinkle onto a plate.

Press each salmon steak into the pepper, covering both sides completely. Cut four pieces of nonstick baking paper, each large enough to hold one salmon steak in a package. Place a salmon steak on each piece of paper and drizzle over some lime juice.

Fold the paper over the fish and twist the edges to secure, making four packages. Place the packages on a baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the fish is cooked and the flesh flakes when tested with a fork.

Place each unopened package on a warmed serving plate and serve with cooked fresh vegetables such as new potatoes, broccoli florets, and carrot sticks.

Variations:
• Use tuna steaks instead of salmon. • Use lemon juice instead of lime.
