SALMON OR FRESH TUNA IN A CREAMY GREEN PEPPERCORN SAUCE
(4 servings)

8 T unsalted butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 lb. fresh spinach, or 10-oz package frozen, thawed and drained
4 6-oz salmon or Ahi fillets
3 T olive oil
1-1/2 C whipping cream
1/2 C vodka
2 T green peppercorns in water, drained and crushed
3 T fresh lime juice
salt and pepper
1/4 C snipped fresh chives

Melt 4 T butter in saucepan. Add 1/2 of the onion and cook until just brown. Add spinach and cook until just wilted (fresh) or heated through (frozen). Set aside after salting and peppering to taste.
Season fish with salt and pepper. Heat oil in large skillet over high heat. Add fish and cook about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to platter and tent with foil. Pour off excess oil from skillet. Add onion, cream and vodka, and boil until slightly thickened (until it coats a wooden spoon - about 10 minutes). Add green peppercorns and remaining 4 T butter, and stir until butter melts. Mix in lime juice, and season with salt and pepper.
Divide spinach among plates. Top each with fish fillet; spoon sauce over, and sprinkle with chives.
