  1. Coarsely crush the peppercorns and mix them together with the seasoned flour.
  2. Skin the fish fillets, wipe with paper towels, and coat them with the peppercorn mixture, pressing it well onto both sides. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the vinaigrette. Combine in a bowl the garlic, mustard, lime zest and juice, 4 tablespoons of oil, salt, pepper, and cilantro.
  4. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat. When hot, add the fish and fry for 3 minutes on each side, until crisp and golden.
  5. Keeping the heat high, pour the vinaigrette around the fish, and maintain heat for a couple of minutes to reduce the liquid.
