Rub this aromatic mixture onto salmon, mackerel, or bluefish fillets.

1. Toast fennel, coriander, and peppercorns over medium heat in small skillet, shaking occasionally to prevent burning, until first wisps of smoke appear, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cool to room temperature, then mix with remaining ingredients.

2. Grind to powder in spice grinder or with mortar and pestle. Source: Cook's Illustrated, July/August 1995.
