  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dillweed
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons crushed pink and green peppercorns
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 (8-ounce) king salmon fillets, with skin


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients. Preheat alder plank* in 400° oven. Place salmon, skin side down, on plank; cover with butter mixture. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until done.
  2. *We recommend a reusable alder plank with a trough cut in the center to hold juices. (See page 231 for a source.) If using a flat disposable alder plank, place in a shallow baking pan to collect drippings.
