Salmon doesn’t get any easier than this! And cooking it on a cedar plank infuses a great smoky flavor and keeps it really moist.
You can find cedar planks everywhere these days–from Sur La Table to Target. Pick one up next time and try this recipe. I think you’ll love it.
Here are a few important tips for grilling on a cedar plank:
- Make sure you soak the plank in water for at least an hour.
- Don’t put it over a direct flame on the grill. (I did that the first time–it wasn’t pretty).
- Cook over indirect heat and you’ll be able to use the plank more than once.
Here’s all you’ll need for a great salmon BBQ.
- 1 cedar plank
- 1 lb. (or more) salmon
- your favorite seasoning
- a little olive oil
- 1 lemon
I found this seasoning at West Elm when I was shopping for outdoor candles. You just never know where something fun will turn up.
Place salmon on water-soaked board. Drizzle with a little olive oil and generously season.
Place over the indirect heat on the grill. Remember M-O-M–medium-off-medium.
It will cook fairly quickly. Just keep an eye on it, you don’t want to overcook. It should take around 12-18 minutes depending on the size and thickness.
Serve with fresh lemon slices and arugula. It’s so tasty and really good for you.
