This is a Bobby Flay recipe that my husband tried this weekend. It was fantastic and turned out so flaky and moist! Delicious
- 1 cedar plank (6 by 14 inches)
- 2 salmon fillets (1 1/2 pounds total)
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 6 tablespoons brown sugar
- Soak cedar plank in salted water for 2 hours, then drain. Remove skin from salmon fillet. Remove any remaining bones. Rinse the salmon under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Generously season the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides. Lay the salmon (on what was skin-side down) on the cedar plank and carefully spread the mustard over the top and sides. Place the brown sugar in a bowl and crumble between your fingers, then sprinkle over the mustard.
- Set grill for indirect grilling and heat to medium-high. Place the cedar plank in the center of the hot grate, away from the heat. Cover the grill and cook until cooked through, around 20 to 30 minutes. The internal temperature should read 135 degrees F. Transfer the salmon and plank to a platter and serve right off the plank.
Delish!! This is my favorite Salmon recipe. I've used this recipe five or six times and it always turns out great. I do cut back on the mustard because I'm not a big fan, but it does such a terrific job of complimenting the cedar plank flavor! Thanks for posting!!
Really Really excellent. I did rub a bit of Horseradish first then followed the rest of the recipe. Thank you for posting this. I will use this recipe again! Btw, i too don't know what breezermom is talking about. It was really good!
I have tried something similar to this one. I also cut the mustard and sugar down, so it was more of a light coating. You have to like mustard to want to like this recipe....I can eat Dijon mustard out of the jar and just groan with pleasure!!! I would agree with CaneCorsoMom regarding the first comment. I smell all my fish before I buy it....I know, I look weird!!! It should have a nice, clean smell. If you are not going to use it the same day, get it out of the plastic wrapper and into a tupperware container, so that it breaths. It is the plastic that turns fish so quickly! Nice and easy....just the way I like them!!
