Cedar-Planked Salmon with Dill Sauce for Six

Author: Canadian Living

As the salmon grills or bakes on the piece of soaked cedar, the wood infuses the fish with a delightfully smoky flavour. Grill asparagus alongside for an easy but very special menu.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 salmon fillets each about 6 oz/175 g
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
Dill Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cucumbers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons minced green onions
  • 2 teaspoons minced chives
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

Soak two 7- x 12-inch (18 x 30 cm) untreated cedar planks in water for at least 30 minutes or for up to 24 hours. Place 3 salmon fillets on top of each plank.

In small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon rind and juice, chives, mustard, salt and pepper; brush half over salmon.

Place planks on grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook, turning fish once and brushing with remaining lemon mixture, for 10 minutes. Cook for about 10 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily when tested with fork.

Dill Sauce: Meanwhile, combine sour cream, cucumber, dill, chives, salt and pepper. Serve with salmon.
