Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon


By Micki Brown

Serves 2


1 salmon filet (1/2 pound) – salmon filet in website photo courtesy of A Cast Away Seafood

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp garlic minced

½ tsp fresh ginger, minced

½ of a cedar plank (I get mine in the BBQ section at Bass Pro Shop)


Soak the cedar plank in water for at least 1 hour. Place the lemon juice, soy sauce and garlic in a plastic bag and let the ingredients blend together. Add the salmon. Squeeze the air out of the bag, seal, and make sure the salmon is coated with the marinade. Let sit in refrigerator for 1-4 hours. Preheat grill to medium heat. Place the marinated salmon skin side down, on the cedar plank, then top with the minced ginger. Place the plank and salmon in the grill, lower the cover, and cook until the salmon begins to flake – about 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillet. When done, remove from grill and serve.
