For the Salmon: When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 250 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
In a bowl mix together bread crumbs, parsley, chives, and lemon juice.
Season salmon with salt and pepper and spread bread crumbs mixture on top.
Smoke salmon for 30 to 40 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. Serve with scalloped pototoes.
For the Scalloped Potatoes: When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 400 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes. Place a dutch oven pan in the grill to pre-heat.
Add butter and onion to the hot dutch oven. Saute until onions start to get color. Add garlic to the dutch oven and saute for approximately 30 seconds.
Add the heavy cream, milk, thyme, bay leave, potatoes, salt and pepper to the dutch oven. Bring to a simmer.
Cover the dutch oven and cook until potatoes are almost tender, about an hour. Stir occasionally to ensure potatoes don’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Remove and discard thyme sprigs and bay leaves. Transfer potatoes mixture to a baking dish and sprinkle with cheese.
Put the baking dish back on the Traeger and bake until sauce has thickened and bubbling around the sides.
Let it cool and slice to desired size. Serve with salmon. Enjoy!
