I've tried this with dried green peppercorns and with the ones in vinegar, and the dried ones are best. Smash 'em up with a mortar and pestle and then mix with the lemon juice. Great taste, and the buttery sauce is perfect on the salmon. This has become one of our staples.
Seared Salmon with Green Peppercorn Sauce for Two
From EatingWell: September/October 2012
In this recipe for two, a simple sauce of piquant green peppercorns, lemon juice and butter top seared salmon. Green peppercorns come from the same plant as black ones, but are harvested before they mature. Typically packed in vinegar, they have a refreshingly sharp flavor. Look for them near the capers in most supermarkets. Serve with smashed red potatoes and sautéed kale

I had to use dry green peppercorns because I couldn't find any in vinegar. It turned out well, though. I smashed up the peppercorns in a mortar and pestle, then added them to the lemon juice. The sauce cooks quickly. Yummy! We'll have this again.
