I've done this and it's wonderful. I toasted the peppercorns a little before grinding, gave it a sort of smokey note.

I have a habit of buying a lot of herbs and spics that I won't necessarily use too often. Sichuan peppers are one of those. This link should help :)

Thanks!

Grind them or crush them and sprinkle on fish, then pan saute the fish in a mixture of butter and olive oil. Also good crusted on pork chops grilled over charcoal.
