    PaulaG's Note:

    Planking is a rather new experience for us. I prepare the food and DH does the rest. This recipe is adapted from and is so simple to make. The original recipe called for parsley which I didn't have. I used fresh garden basil and loved it. Serve with rice, fresh bread and a salad for a lovely meal that is sure to impress. Please note: The cooking or prep time does not include the time needed to soak the cedar plank.

      Very tasty, adding the sun-dried tomatoes to the vinaigrette plumped them up and gave the sauce a great tang and savouriness. Went very well with the planked salmon and rice (I used jasmine). Thanks.

      Yum! Only change I made to suit local seasonal availability was to use a little less dried basil instead of fresh. It was wonderful served over couscous with some steamed vegies and a few cherry tomatoes. The cedar planking gave a wonderful smokey flavour while being very easy to prepare.

      Fantastic way to cook salmon. The grilling on the cedar-plank was fun and the dressing mixture really added to the flavor of the salmon. Thanks for posting this easy-to-follow recipe.
