Pink Peppercorn Salmon

You all know I love these delivery food services where all the ingredients come measured out and all I have to do is cook it. I've tried Plated and Purple Carrot and now my best friend got me a new one to try, the Green Chef, which happens to be organic. The first meal I made was this Pink Peppercorn Salmon which was really delicious!
