Cedar-Planked Salmon on the Grill

Cedar-Planked Salmon on the Grill

Simple is divine. This very old method of cooking fish celebrates the pure, clean taste of fresh salmon.

1 whole salmon fillet, 18 inches long (about 2-1/2 pounds)
1 tablespoon lemon zest (zest of 1 lemon)
3 sprigs fresh dill, snipped
Salt and pepper
Lemon wedges

Immerse an untreated, 20-inch cedar plank suitable for cooking use in water; soak at least 1 hour or up to 1 day. Place salmon fillet, skin side down, on soaked plank. Sprinkle with lemon zest, dill, salt, and pepper.

Place planked salmon in center of cooking grate. Grill 25 to 30 minutes or until salmon is opaque in center and flesh flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with lemon wedges.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Note: Make sure the plank you choose is virgin cedar. Buy one specially made for food preparation, usually sold in cookware stores.
