This is from the Home Hardware flyer if you can believe it. We had it the other night for dinner and it was divine.
- 16 ounces salmon fillets
- 3 tablespoons dry sherry
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely minced
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1⁄4 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
- lemon slice
- In a shallow glass dish, combine the sherry, soy sauce, sesame oil, butter and ginger.
- Place the fish in the marinade for 30 minutes.
- Soak the cedar plank in water for 20-45 minutes
- Preheat the grill at a medium-low setting (300 degrees).
- After removing the plank from the liquid, pat dry and coat with olive oil on both sides.
- Place the plank on the grill with the salmon and shut the lid.
- Leave for 15-20 mins (note: when using whole salmon, the cooking time will increase to approximately 45-50 mins).
- Check salmon on the thickest part of the fillet to ensure even cooking. The salmon should have an opaque colour and be flaky to the touch with a fork.
- Once done, serve with lemon or lime for squeezing over the fish.
I finally decided that if I was going to be a self respecting Washingtonian I needed to cedar plank some salmon. I'm so glad I chose this recipe. We devoured this and left nothing behind but plank. I had to stop my 8 year old from licking that clean. Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe!
Awesome! Loved the marinade and the ginger theme which along with the cedar planking was great. Really worth a try for anyone with a BBQ / grill with a hood.
