Salmon in Vodka Marinade
Saumon en Marinade de Vodka

Serves: 4 : 4

Mix the oil, vodka and black pepper together and marinate the salmon fillets for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 400º. Remove fish from marinade and reserve both. In a skillet over high heat, sear the salmon fillets flesh-side down until they get golden-brown, about 30 seconds. Set the skillet in the oven and roast until the fish is almost done, about 8 minutes. Return the skillet to the stove top over high heat, add the butter, turn the fillets over and sear the skin side for one minute. Set aside on warmed plates and sprinkle with fleur de sel. Pour the marinade in the skillet, add the cream and green peppercorns; bring to a boil until the sauce thickens. Pool sauce around the fish and serve immediately.NOTE: Make sure your skillet has oven-proof handles!
