Trout steaks with peppercorns and allspice

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 teaspoon Szechwan peppercorns
½ teaspoon White peppercorns
½ teaspoon Black peppercorns
½ teaspoon Allspice berries
4 \N Lake trout steaks
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
½ teaspoon Salt

Coarsely crack the peppercorns with a mortar and prestle or with a wooden mallet in an aluminum pie plate. Brush both sides of the steaks with oil; sprinkle with salt and the crushed peppers.

Heat a cast iron pan for 2 to 3 minutes, until very hot. Place the steaks in the pan and cook them over very high heat for 1-2 min. on each side. Cover the pan, remove from the heat, and let stand for 5 minutes before serving. The steaks will continue to cook from the residual heat.
