Have you looked at those wooden planks stacked in the seafood section at your market and wondered how to grill salmon with them? Turns out, it's an easy way to add a smoky flavor to a simple salmon fillet.

Directions
1. 
Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels.

Drain oil from skillet; wipe clean with paper towel. Add peppers to skillet and cook 2 minutes or until crisp tender.
5. 
Serve fish with peppers and lemon. Makes 4 servings.
