This is the first time I used a cedar plank for cooking fish -- and this is the best way to grill salmon as far as we're concerned (also lower fat too) - the salmon came out so moist and spiced just right -- the fish doesn't taste spicy at all.

I used the spice rub (but more cayenne for personal taste) on the salmon and since I don't have a grill or the plank for the grill - I used my George Foreman, and it came out delicious! The rub made a "crust" on the fish which was superb! It's a pain to measure out all the spices, but once it's done, you realize it's worth it. Thanks for a keeper!

Seasoned and grilled as instructed. I did follow PaulaG's idea of seasoning it about an hour before cooking. We have been plank-grilling salmon for a while but this was a delicious variation. Thanks for posting ellie

Holy yum! This is excellent. Made it as instructed and it turned out perfectly. Will be making this one again and again!
