Salt & pepper salmon


  • Dry roast the Sichuan peppercorns and salt in a heavy-bottomed pan. When the mixture begins to 'pop', remove and allow to cool a little. Then grind about 4 tbsp of the mixture using a mortar and pestle (or in a food processor).
  • Combine the flours with the unground dry roasted mixture in a plastic bag (or bowl). Then add the salmon and toss until well coated.
  • Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and deep fry the fish, in batches, until golden and crispy. Then drain well on kitchen paper towels.
  • Serve the salmon with lemon wedges and the remaining ground salt and pepper mixture on the side.
