Cedar Plank Salmon


Cedar Plank Salmon

20 Min

Once you've made this salmon cooked on a cedar plank, you'll never want to eat salmon any other way! It's easy to make, juicy and packed with flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 1 untreated cedar plank (about 14" x 17" x 1/2")
  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 (2-pound) salmon fillet (1 inch thick), skin removed

What to Do

  1. Completely immerse cedar plank in water, placing a weight on top to keep it totally covered. Soak at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  3. In a small bowl, combine dressing, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil; set aside.
  4. Remove plank from water. Place salmon on plank; place on grill and close lid. Grill 10 minutes then brush salmon with dressing mixture. Close lid and grill 10 more minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

Important Note

Cedar planks get very hot when grilling, so:

  • Do not leave grill unattended.
  • Always keep a spray bottle of water on hand in case of flare-ups.
  • Use long-handled grill tongs to remove plank from grill.
  • Once cool, properly dispose of planks.

Was sooo delicious. However, BBQ was out of propane right when I was getting ready to put on the grill. For those who need to use the oven, just set to 375 degrees instead. Put cedar plank on broil pan Still tasted wonderful. No smoke in the house. And house smells of yummy dinner and cedar wood.
