Quick + Easy Tips on Grilling Salmon on a Cedar Plank
Grilling Salmon Made Easy and Super Delicious on a Cedar Plank
My excitement builds up when summer and fishing season come because I get to make delicious fish recipes in the kitchen! What I love about grilling salmon on a cedar plank is its enticing aroma plus it’s so easy to prepare. Also, it saves us from dealing with black grill marks.
My husband and I share the same interests with fish as one of our main favorite foods. And since it’s our first kiss anniversary this weekend–it’s kind of a thing for us–I am giving him a romantic dinner as a gift. As much as I would want to be as extravagant as celebrities with gift giving, all I can spare him is my cooking that involves much, much love. 🙂
Anyhow, let’s start grillin’!
- 1 pc of Cedar Plank
- 1 slice of Salmon, big
- 1/2 cup of Olive oil
- 1/2 tsp of Pepper
- 1/2 tsp of Seasalt
- 1 tsp of Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp of Parsley
- 1/2 tsp of Dry Mustard
- Lemon Juice, 1 pc of Lemon freshly squeezed
- Make sure that you use untreated grilling planks to avoid chemicals from mixing with your food.
- You can soak the plank with any kind of wine or with water.
- It is best if you use a liquid that is a bit warm or at the room temperature so that it gets well absorbed by the plank.
- Keep a spray of water with you just in case your plank catches fire.
- Remove your fish from the grill when it starts flaking because it’s a sign that it is already well done.
1. Soak plank
Soak the cedar plank in wine for 1 hour before you start grilling.
