A different, delicious way to cook salmon. Very delectable, very gourmet, very easy!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Soak the cedar plank (s) overnight.
- 2You can buy cedar planks for cooking salmon at many grocery stores.
- 3If you can't find one at a grocery store, make sure the cedar you use has no wood preservatives or other chemicals in it, unless you're into eating that sort of stuff.
- 4Might I recommend a glass of turpentine as a lovely accompanyment if you use preserved wood.
- 6Start the BBQ and preheat to HIGH.
- 7Rub the filets all over with olive oil.
- 8Sprinkle them with fresh dill and onion.
- 9Drizzle with juice from the fresh lemon.
- 10Sprinkle the cedar plank with the salt and place it on the now hot BBQ grill.
- 11Leave it there for about 3 minutes, until it appears mostly dry on top (remember, it was soaking in water and should be quite wet....) Place your salmon filets (skin side down if the skin's still on them) on the plank.
- 12Turn down the BBQ to low.
- 13Drizzle some real maple syrup over the filets.
- 14This is the secret ingredient.
- 16Not Aunt Jemima.
- 17Cook on low for about 10-15 min depending on the size of the filets.
- 18When it appears the salmon is done ie.
- 19flakes easily, slide the filets off the cedar plank onto the BBQ grill, skin down.
- 20Crank up the BBQ to high, put some more maple syrup on top and cover for about 2 minutes.
- 21This should finish off the salmon nicely, leaving delicious filets ready to eat, and skin that peels off easily if you don't like to eat it.
