    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.

    • 1 -2 salmon fillet
    • 1 cedar plank, 10 x8 large enough for the salmon to cook on with out hanging over the sides. 3/4-inch to 1-inch thi



    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

      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.
