This is a fantastic way of grilling Salmon, and the sauce is simply fantastic - To make a cedar plank version, soak an untreated cedar plank in clean water for 2 hours. Place the plank on the grill over high heat and preheat for 5-10 minutes, or until the wood begins smoking. Place the salmon on the cedar and proceed as directed in the recipe. For best results, use skinless salmon.
- Preheat the grill to medium-high and grease well. Pierce a piece of nonstick foil several times with a skewer and place on a baking sheet. Stir the sauce with the lemon juice, chives, butter, honey, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and hot pepper flakes, (if using).
- Set the salmon, skin-side-down, on the prepared foil. Brush half of the sauce mixture over the salmon fillet. Slide the foil onto the grate. Cook, covered and without turning, for 15-17 minutes or until the salmon is cooked but still slightly coral in the center. Brush with the remaining glaze during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
- To serve, slice salmon into portions; use a thin metal spatula to lift each portion off the foil, leaving the skin behind. Garnish with additional chives.
