King Salmon on a Cedar Plank

Rate this Recipe

Serves 4 | 


4 8 oz. portions fresh King Salmon fillet, skin on, pin bones removed
4 untreated individual cedar planks
1/3 cup fresh ginger, finely minced
  1. Soak the plank in water for 2 hours.
  2. Place the salmon on the plank, skin side down. Score the salmon crosswise, and lengthwise about an inch apart, making cuts that go down through the salmon, but not through the skin. Rub the ginger over the salmon and into the cuts. Sprinkle the rub all over the salmon, rubbing it into the cuts.
  3. Preheat grill to 350.
  4. Lay the plank on the barbeque grate. When the plank begins to smoke, place the cover over the grill. Cook for 17-20 minutes, or until the flesh of the salmon begins to flake when prodded with a fork.
  5. To serve, transfer the cedar plank to a wooden platter lined with aluminum foil. Bring the salmon to the table on the smoking plank. Serve at once.
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Cooking Method: Grill
Main Ingredient: Salmon
Course: Dinner
