Cedar Plank Salmon

 

  • 1 cedar plank
  • 2 salmon fillets , 3/4 lb pound each*
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 sprig of fresh dill
  • 1 tsp of oil 
Instructions
  1. Soak cedar plank in water for at least 2 hours, or up to 24 hours, prior to grilling.
  2. Turn grill to medium-high heat. When ready to cook, place the pre-soaked cedar plank on the hot grate and close the lid. Leave it there until there is a smoke-y smell, about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Turn the plank over and place the salmon, skin side down, on top. Spread a spoonful of oil mix with pepper, salt&dill on top of each filet and add a thin slice of lemon, if desired.
  4. For indirect heat grilling: Heat grill to medium-high heat. Cook salmon in the center of hot grate, away from the heat. Cover the grill and cook salmon for about 15 to 25 minutes (depending on thickness), or until cooked through (135 degrees F) and flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to overcook it.
  5. You can cook the salmon over direct heat, but be careful to check the cedar plank occasionally. If the edges start to catch fire, mist with water, or move the plank to a cooler part of the grill.
