Cedar Plank Salmon With Mustard-Herb Glaze

"Grilling salmon on the cedar plank infuses the fish with an aromatic smokiness highlighted by the herb and mustard glaze. A simple and elegant presentation. You need a 15 inch cedar plank and prep time includes the plank soaking period."

  • Put a weight atop the cedar plank and soak in water for a minimum of one hour, preferably longer.
  • Brush the flesh side of the salmon fillet with olive oil; season with Kosher salt and fresh black pepper. Combine Dijon mustard and herbs; brush over salmon.
  • Place the soaked plank on grill grate over medium-high heat; cover and heat for 3 minutes. Turn plank over with tongs and heat until light smoke develops, about 3 minutes more.
  • Place salmon skin-side down on heated plank over medium-high heat; cover and grill until salmon reaches an internal temperature of 140 F, 15-20 minutes.
  • Transfer salmon to serving plate. With tongs carefully remove hot plank from grill to a safe, heat-resistant cooling place. Let salmon rest 5 minutes before serving.

I'm a transplant from Alabama now living in a St. Louis, MO suburb. After many years as a senior consultant, I had to have major surgery with a long recovery period, which is when I found your site. What a thrill!! I spent many years collecting cook books before losing them all (including my Mom's recipes) in a house fire. I still collect books when I can, but more often I frequent 'Zaar and get the best recipes! I rate the recipes I really love, which is why most of my ratings are high. So far I haven't encountered a recipe I didn't like where I didn't change something in the original, and I don't think it fair to give a low rating under those circumstances. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
