Cedar Plank Mustard Salmon with Baby Red Potatoes #festfoods

As our Dietitian, Brittany, says, this is a recipe for Slammin’ Salmon!  You may be wondering why she calls it that, but it’s because it’s so darn tasty! Here's the two of us showing you how to make it yourself on our cooking show featured on WFRV's Local 5 Live show.

The salmon is smothered in Dijon mustard and grilled to perfection on a cedar plank, which gives it that classic cedar smoke flavor.  It’s then topped with a smattering of fresh dill and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.  And…. the ingredients are on sale this week {SCORE}, so eat up, folks!

20 Minute Meals: 

Cedar Plank Salmon with Baby Red Potatoes


1 lb. baby red potatoes, quartered

2 Tbsp. olive oil

Dash salt and ground black pepper

4 salmon filets, about 4 oz. each, skin removed

¼ cup Dijon mustard

2 Tbsp. fresh dill, chopped {optional}

Juice of 1 lemon {optional}

½ lb. asparagus from our deli  


  1. Submerge cedar plank in water and soak for least 30 minutes; drain.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  3. Tear off 2 large pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil and stack them on top of each other. Place quartered potatoes in the center of the foil; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Crimp foil closed, rolling sides to fully seal the packet.  Place on the grill, close the lid and cook 15-20 minutes, flipping packet once, until potatoes are tender.
  4. Season salmon filets with salt and pepper. Brush top and sides with Dijon mustard.  Place salmon on the cedar plank and onto the grill; cover and cook 15-18 minutes, until salmon flakes easily with a fork.  Garnish with dill and lemon juice, if desired.  Serve with potatoes and asparagus from our deli.
