Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon
Since salmon is such a popular cedar plank food, let’s take a look at how we can grill it to perfection.
- 3 12" untreated cedar planks
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- 1½ tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup chopped green onions
- 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger root
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 2 2 lb salmon fillets with the skin removed
Soak planks in warm water for at least an hour; the longer the better.
Stir vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger root and garlic in a shallow dish. Place salmon in the dish and leave in for 15 minutes to an hour to marinate.
Heat outdoor grill to medium heat and place planks on the top. When boards start to smoke and crackle, add the salmon discarding the marinade.
Cover salmon and grill about 20 minutes. The fillets will be ready when you can flake them with a fork.
