    Steps

    • 1

      In a medium bowl, toss the potatoes with the chives and flour and season with salt and pepper. Lay the salmon fillets on a work surface and season with Traeger Salmon Shake.
    • 2

      Spread a thin layer of mustard on each of the fillets. Evenly pat the shredded potatoes onto the top of each fillet.
    • 3

      Place a 10 to 12-inch cast iron pan on the grill grate and preheat to 450 degrees F, High, with lid closed for 10 to 15 minutes.
    • 4

      After the grill has heated, pour the oil into the pan and allow it to heat for about 5 minutes. Carefully add the salmon fillets to the oil, potato side down.
    • 5

      Cook, undisturbed, until browned, about 8 minutes. Carefully flip the salmon and cook for 1 minute longer. Using a slotted spatula, transfer the salmon to plates. Blot off any excess oil.
    • 6

      Make the lemon butter sauce by adding white wine, lemon juice, cream, garlic, salt and pepper into a small pan. Heat on high heat and reduce by half its original volume. Remove from heat and swirl in butter.
    • 7

      Serve salmon warm with the lemon butter sauce and perhaps some grilled asparagus. Enjoy!
