Cedar Plank Salmon

Submitted by Marcia Brisson
Recipe card from

*Filet of fresh salmon (1-2 pounds)
*1 untreated cedar plank (available at most grocery stores)
*Lemon (sliced), black pepper, dill, garlic powder, salt, olive oil

1. Soak cedar plank under water approx. 20 minutes, while barbeque is heating. Medium heat recommended.
2. Season salmon to taste (pepper, spices, etc.). Lightly sprinkle olive oil on top of plank. Place salmon on soaked plank, skin side down. Place lemon slices on top.
3.Place in barbeque. A squirt bottle with warm water may be necessary to douse flame outbreaks around edges.
4.Cook approx. 8 mintues per pound. Cooking times vary depending on thickness of fish. Longer cooking times may be necessary because the plank absorbs more heat than items placed directly on grill.
5.Remove plank from barbeque. Serve and enjoy!
