1/3 Photos of Easy Cedar-plank Salmon
Once the boards are cut to size, this is a very simple way to cook salmon. As long as you don't overcook the salmon, it comes out moist and flavorful. Grilling time depends on how hot your coals are and how thick the board.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cut a cedar plank to fit your barbeque grill.
- 2You won't be saving this, so no need to be fancy.
- 3(We usually get a 1"-thick, 12" wide board and cut it into appropriately sized pieces.) Completely submerse the cedar plank in water for 15 minutes.
- 4Put the salmon"skin-side" down on the wet plank.
- 5(Remember that anything hanging off the side of the board will burn, so try to maneuver the salmon all onto the board.) Salt and pepper to taste.
- 6If you have a favorite herb or spice, you might want to add a sprinkle now.
- 7Pat a thickish coating of brown sugar evenly over the top of the salmon.
- 8We like our salmon well-glazed, so we pat about a 1/4" layer onto the fish.
- 9Dot with little chunks of the butter, use more or less to your taste.
- 10Grill (on a rack) above medium hot coals until the fish is firm in the center.
- 11To serve, just pop the plank onto a platter and cut pieces off the salmon at the table.
