    baumer64's Note:

    I love smoked salmon but usually don't like it any other way. I decided to experiment after trying this method at a friend's house. This marinade and cooking technique gave the salmon a great taste which my family and I all loved. Good flavor and a bit of smoked salmon taste. The basic marinade recipe came with the cedar plank but I've added some ingredients that have made it even better. The cedar isn't anything special a cedar board cut to fit on your grill will do. Do not use treated wood for cooking.

    Marinade

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Clean and de-bone salmon. Pull pin bones with a pair of pliers.
    2. 2
      Soak Cedar plank in water for at least 1 hour weighting it down to fully submerge.
    3. 3
      Mix together all the marinade ingredients (except the butter) and pour into a sealing bag with the salmon. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
    4. 4
      Pre-heat grill on high (350-400 F) Place soaked cedar plank on the grill close the lid and wait 3-5 minutes or until the plank starts to smoke.
    5. 5
      Place salmon on the plank, skin side down. (If skin is removed, rub olive oil on plank and lay fish directly on the plank.)
    6. 6
      Put the pads of butter all over the salmon.
    7. 7
      Reduce the heat of the grill. Try to keep the plank smoking without actually catching fire. When flames appear, spray them with a water bottle.
    8. 8
      Close the lid and check periodically to make sure the plank does not ignite.
    9. 9
      Cook the salmon for 8-10 minutes per inch thickness of the fillet.

      This was the first time I had fixed salmon using a cedar plank. I enjoyed the taste of the fish, but I found the texture to be very soft, too soft for my preference.
