Low Carb Szechuan Pepper Fish

Serving Size: 4

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Low Carb Ingredients:
1 tsp peppercorns
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 med garlic clove, peeled through a garlic press
1 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 1/3 lb cod, cut into 4 pieces
1 dash salt
4 lemon or lime wedges for garnish

Crush the peppercorns coarsely in a mortar and pestle. (If you do not have a mortar and pestle you can wrap peppercorns in a small piece of plastic wrap and crush with a heavy pan.). Mix together the hoisin sauce, garlic, vinegar, and sesame oil.

Place the fish on a broiling pan and spread with about 1/2 of the low carb sauce. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the peppercorns; sprinkle lightly with salt. Bake in a preheated 450°F-230°F oven 7 minutes.

Remove the fish from the oven. Raise the oven rack to the highest position and turn the heat to broil. Spread the fish with the remaining low carb sauce and sprinkle with the remaining peppercorns. Broil 3 minutes, or until the fish tests done, and is slightly crusty.... Serve with lemon or lime wedges.
