Cedar Plank Salmon on the BBQ–It Doesn’t Get Any Easier Than This!

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:
  1. Make sure you soak the plank in water for at least an hour.
  2. Don’t put it over a direct flame on the grill. (I did that the first time–it wasn’t pretty).
  3. 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
  • arugula

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.
