  1. Preheat the grill and set the grill rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking tray with foil.
  2. Using a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, grind the peppercorns, chopped garlic, lime zest and salt until the peppercorns are finely ground. Rub salmon fillets with olive oil, then place onto the prepared tray, skin side down. Rub spice mixture onto top of salmon fillets.
  3. Grill until the salmon is flaky and no longer pink in the centre, 10 to 15 minutes. Drizzle with soy sauce and serve.
