I'm cooking my first cedar planked salmon this weekend. What is your favorite sauce to accompany this salmon?

  • Jim,[p]I don't think you'll need any more flavor. If you want, try a Beurre Blanc like the one below I found on the FoodTV site.[p]Lemon Beurre Blanc:
    1 cup dry white wine
    1 tablespoon chopped shallot
    1/4 stalk lemongrass, chopped
    5 whole white peppercorns
    1/4 pound cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces[p]Beurre Blanc: In a non-reactive saucepan, combine the wine,
    shallot, lemongrass, and peppercorns. Bring to boil and
    reduce the liquid to about 2 tablespoons. Remove the pan
    from heat and let cool until bottom of the pan is just
    warm--not hot. Return the pan to low heat and
    whisk in butter a few pieces at a time to form a smooth
    sauce (the butter should emulsify, not melt.) Strain
    through a sieve and keep warm.

  • Jim,I put the salmon in a plastic bag dump in some teriyaki sauce for 30 to 45 min and throw it on the grill. It’s easy, quick and tastes grate.

  • i would mix sourcream & fresh chopped dill, seasoned with the same rub you used on the Salmon

    I too have lived a sheltered life. All I do is mix up some lime(or lemon) juice, Kosher salt, and a little pepper and pour over the fish. Reserve some for dipping.
