How to Make Cedar Planked Salmon- Video

1 Comment 27 April 2011

Now that I’ve had some time to recover from Passover cooking, I’m ready for some new kosher recipe ideas and new flavors for my kitchen.

This video will make you crave this salmon, prepared on a cedar plank embedded on a layer of scallions. The  cooked maple-ginger sauce glazes the salmon perfectly. The Mustard mashed potatoes are mouthwatering.  Great for a weeknight dinner and for entertaining a small crowd. Print and save this recipe for a Mother’s Day Lunch or a Shavuot Dinner!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated peeled fresh gingerroot
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • an untreated cedar plank (about 17 by 10 1/2 inches) if desired
  • a 2 1/2-pound center-cut salmon fillet with skin
  • greens from 1 bunch scallions
  •  

    Directions for this Kosher Recipe

  • In a small heavy saucepan simmer maple syrup, gingerroot, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste until reduced to about 1 cup, about 30 minutes, and let cool. (Maple glaze may be made 2 days ahead and chilled, covered. Bring maple glaze to room temperature before proceeding.) Preheat oven to 350° F. If using cedar plank, lightly oil and heat in middle of oven 15 minutes; or lightly oil a shallow baking pan large enough to hold salmon.Arrange scallion greens in one layer on plank or in baking pan to form a bed for fish.In another small saucepan heat half of glaze over low heat until heated through to use as a sauce. Stir in remaining tablespoon lemon juice. Remove pan from heat and keep sauce warm, covered.Put salmon, skin side down, on scallion greens and brush with remaining glaze. Season salmon with salt and pepper and roast in middle of oven until just cooked through, about 20 minutes if using baking pan or about 35 if using plank.Cut salmon crosswise into 6 pieces. On each of 6 plates arrange salmon and scallion greens on a bed of mashed potatoes. Drizzle salmon with warm sauce.
  • Buy untreated cedar planks at  Target.  Treated cedar planks may have flavorings that are unkosher, so unless you find them with a hashgachah stick with the ones from Target. You can also buy them from a hardware store.

  • Mustard Mashed Potatoes Ingredients *note-many  Sephardic Jews do not eat dairy and fish in the same dish or plate. Read more HERE or ask your rabbi.
    • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes
    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons whole-grain or coarse-grain mustard
  • In a 5-quart kettle cover potatoes with cold salted water by 2 inches and simmer until tender, 35 to 45 minutes. While potatoes are simmering, in a small saucepan heat milk with butter over moderate heat until butter is melted. Remove pan from heat and keep milk mixture warm, covered.

  • In a colander drain potatoes and cool just until they can be handled. Peel potatoes, transferring to a large bowl. Add mustard, salt and pepper to taste, and three fourths hot milk mixture and with a potato masher mash potatoes until smooth, adding more milk mixture if necessary to make them creamy. (Potatoes may be made 1 day ahead and cooled completely before being chilled in a buttered ovenproof dish, covered. Bring potatoes to room temperature before reheating, covered.)
