Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon

AmateurKitchen's picture
Grilled salmon is made even better when cooked on a cedar plank. The cedar plank adds a sweet, smoky flavor to the salmon. You’ll never grill salmon the traditional way again.
Ingredients
  Salmon fillets 1 1⁄2 Pound, skin removed (Whole)
  Salmon fillet 1 1⁄2 Pound, skin removed (Whole)
  Olive oil 5 Tablespoon
  Fresh dill 2 Tablespoon, minced
  Minced fresh dill 2 Tablespoon
  Lemon 1 , zested
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1 Teaspoon
Directions

Soak untreated cedar plank(s) fully submerged in water for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours.

When ready to grill turn the burners to high for 10 minutes. While grill is heating, mix the olive oil, fresh dill, zest of a lemon, salt and pepper into a bowl; rub the salmon to coat.

Place the cedar plank(s) on the grill over indirect heat and allow for the plank(s) to smoke; usually about 5 minutes. Place the salmon on the plank(s) and turn the burners to a low heat and cook for 20 minutes or until salmon reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees.

Serves well with lemon wedges, grilled vegetables and rice pilaf. Enjoy!
