|Julian's Cedar Plank Salmon|
Salmon freezes well and they vacuum pack it now, so it really is quite good. In the photo above I'm using a piece of previously frozen sockeye salmon, skin on, from Costco. Sockeye salmon is less fatty that the classic farm raised, more pink, salmon, and we prefer it, although either type works fine.
Seasoning of your choice
Salmon fillet (thawed if previously frozen)
Soak the cedar plank for 30 minutes to 2 hours, the longer the better. Preheat the grill until it reaches about 375F degrees. Rub the salmon on both sides lightly with olive oil. Place the salmon flat (and skin if still on) side down, and sprinkle with your favorite seasonings. Turn off the burner directly below the cedar plank and place the salmon on the plank in that spot. Close the lid and monitor temperature to maintain it around 375F degrees. Once the grill returns to temperature, then cook for 30 minutes. Remove salmon from the plank to plates and serve.
