Easy Cedar-plank Salmon

Recipe by Akikobay
READY IN: 50mins




  • Cut a cedar plank to fit your barbeque grill.
  • You won't be saving this, so no need to be fancy.
  • (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.
  • Put the salmon"skin-side" down on the wet plank.
  • (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.
  • If you have a favorite herb or spice, you might want to add a sprinkle now.
  • Pat a thickish coating of brown sugar evenly over the top of the salmon.
  • We like our salmon well-glazed, so we pat about a 1/4" layer onto the fish.
  • Dot with little chunks of the butter, use more or less to your taste.
  • Grill (on a rack) above medium hot coals until the fish is firm in the center.
  • To serve, just pop the plank onto a platter and cut pieces off the salmon at the table.
