Barbecued Cedar-Planked Salmon


I love to make this recipe and hope that you will too!

Barbecued Cedar-Planked Salmon


1 9 x 15-inch untreated cedar plank, soaked in water for at least an hour
1 wild salmon fillet, 1½ pounds (about 10-12 inches long)
½ cup favorite barbecue sauce
Sea salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste


Grilling Method: Indirect/Medium Heat

Remove the plank from the water and place fillet skin side down on wood. Brush fish with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place planked salmon in the center of the cooking grate, plank side down. Grill for 15-20 minutes or until salmon is pink in the center and flakes easily with a fork. Five minutes before removing from the grill, brush with a thin coat of your favorite barbecue sauce-we particularly like a bourbon and brown sugar sauce.

Remove from grill and serve the salmon directly from the plank.
