Have you ever wondered what all the cedar plank salmon hype was about? Did you know there was cedar plank salmon hype? Well, there is, and I found out why this weekend. IT IS AMAZING. It infuses the salmon with so much flavor and keeps it so moist, and when you take it off the grill it sort of smells like a brand new house. Yes, a house. From the wood.
I bought my planks at Whole Foods. I actually never really planned on making cedar plank salmon, but they sell the planks right next to the seafood section and they are only $2. Well done, Whole Foods. Nice product placement.
This might be the easiest dinner on the planet. I can’t be sure about Mars or Venus.
- Soak the planks in salted water
- Heat the grill to medium
- Drizzle each salmon with olive oil, then S&P
- Top each salmon with 1 tablespoon each of Dijon mustard and brown sugar
- Place salmon on the plank
- Grill for 15-20 minutes
You could also grill over indirect heat for 20-30 minutes, if you want a more slow roasted salmon.
That’s all I’ve got for now, have a good week!
