Grilled Cedar-Plank Salmon


Grilled Cedar-Planked Salmon


Difficulty = Medium


Step 1.

Soak the cedar planks for one hour (minimum) in warm water. The longer the better.



Step 2.

Make the marinade.


1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup chopped green onions

1 tablespoon ginger, grated or paste

1 teaspoon minced garlic


Mix ingredients and pour into a large Ziploc bag. Add salmon. Place bag

in the refrigerator and marinate for at least 1 hour.


Remove cedar planks from water. Brush tops of planks with vegetable oil--or spray tops

with Pam spray.


Step 3.

Heat grill. When coals are medium-high, place the soaked planks on the grill rack. Wait

about 3 minutes, then place salmon on the planks. Lower the cover on the grill and let

salmon cook 20 to 25 minutes, checking occasionally. When salmon is done (it will be flaky),

remove planks to a serving platter (Bandwidth lifted the grill rack and placed it on a large cookie sheet). Garnish salmon with fresh herbs and lemon slices.
