    Sage's Note:

    My son prepared this wonderful dish for us and it was my first time to taste this method of griiling; what flavour! Planked salmon is a method of cooking salmon that has been used for many years. The salmon is slow cooked, which produces a rich, smoky flavor. Use only untreated cedar; look for planks at the fish counter at your supermarket or ask your fishmonger.

      I love salmon! Used Alaskan Sockeye and Grade B Maple Syrup. In place of the tarragon, I used fresh Italian Oregano. This was served with Sauteed Zucchini, Cherry Tomatoes, Olives and Basil. Delicious and healthy. Made for *ZWT 4*

      absolutely awesome! this is a fantastic idea and definitely a great alternative barbecue idea. Think I went a bit overboard with the maple syrup, but I love the sweetness anyway.

      I LOVE CEDAR PLANKED SALMON, and the maple flavor just made it even better! Did not have tarragon so used basil instead! Thanks for a great recipe!
