Cedar Plank Salmon with Citrus Buerre Blanc


Cooking salmon on a cedar plank is a simple way to infuse it with aromatics. Most often the cedar provides a slightly smoky finish. In this case you’ll also be getting flavor from Chardonnay wine! Serves 4.


  • 1 cup Chardonnay*
  • 1 cup (or as needed) water
  • 4 (5 oz)Skin-on salmon fillets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp dry white wine
  • 3 tbsp shallots, minced
  • ¾ cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into tablespoon-size pieces
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp orange zest
  • ½ tsp lime zest
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Prepare:

For the salmon

  1. Place 2 cedar planks into baking dish with water and Chardonnay. Soak for 25 minutes to an hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 325° F. Place cedar planks onto a cookie sheet and lemon and orange slices onto planks.
  3. Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush salmon with oil and sprinkle salmon with salt, pepper and coriander. Add 2 fish fillet, flesh side down, to the skillet. Cook, without moving salmon, until brown crust forms, about 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and place salmon onto citrus slices on cedar plank, skin side down. Repeat with remaining salmon.
  4. Place cookie sheet into the oven and cook for 8 to 10 minutes for thin pieces or fish and 10 to 15 for thicker pieces of fish.

*This is the one time you want to use cheap Chardonnay; a chance to get rid of any junk wine that friends or family have been kind enough to give as a gift. The cheaper wines will have a stronger oak flavor.

For the Citrus Buerre Blanc

  1. In a medium saucepan combine white wine vinegar, white wine, and shallots. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until mixture is reduced to a glaze (that coats the back of a spoon), about 5 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low and add butter, 1 piece at a time, whisking until just melted before adding more.
  3. Add zest and season with salt and pepper; and serve.
