Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon



Dry rub seasoning



  1. Place dry rub ingredients in a food processor or spice grinder and process until well blended. Transfer to a small bowl or cup, wrap tightly and store at room temperature until ready to use.
  2. Soak the cedar plank for at least 5 hours.
  3. Place the fillets on wax paper. Sprinkle both sides of the fish evenly with the dry rub (1 1/2 teaspoons per serving). Press the seasoning into the flesh. Refrigerate the salmon, uncovered, for at least 2 hours and up to 12 hours.
  4. Place the salmon pieces in the center of the cedar plank. Squeeze a lemon wedge over the salmon. Place the plank on a grill. If using a gas grill, preheat on high then turn down to medium before placing the planks on the grill. If using a charcoal grill, wait until coals are covered with gray ash. Cover with a lid.
  5. There will be some crackling and heavy smoke. Keep a water bottle handy in case the planks begin to flame. If they do, spray lightly and cover again. Salmon should take 8 to 10 minutes to cook, depending on the thickness of the salmon and the heat of the grill. Remove when the salmon reaches an internal temperature of 120 to 125 degrees F.
  6. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve.
