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
- Completely immerse cedar plank in water, placing a weight on top to keep it totally covered. Soak at least 1 hour.
- Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
- In a small bowl, combine dressing, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil; set aside.
- 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.
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.
