By cooking this salmon on a plank, you add a wonderful light, smoky flavor that perfectly balances its rich, sweet marinade.
If you’ve never grilled with a plank, it’s easy. First, choose a plank. Western cedar is a popular grilling plank, but alder, apple, cherry, hickory and maple are great options, as well.
Next, prepare the plank by submerging it in water for about one to four hours. You can enhance the plank’s flavor by adding one tablespoon of salt to the water. Apple cider vinegar, white wine vinegar, citrus or berry juice, or a flavored alcohol will also add extra flavor to the plank.
Next, prepare your salmon. If you’re grilling whole fillets, cut it into serving-size portions or use individual steaks. Add a dry rub or marinade to the salmon or just grill it natural.
Prepare your grill. Place the plank on the grates and the fish on the plank. Grill until done.
For the perfect side dish to this recipe, toss some veggies on the grill and douse them in some EVOO and soy sauce to complement the flavor of the salmon.
