I've made this recipe several times now... mostly at the request of my wife. When I say 'several times', I mean about twice a week for a month. This was my first cedar plank recipe and I was very pleased with the results. What an incredible flavor! Thank you.
Meh. It was decent at best. Needs more flavors. I marinated the fish for an hour and it still didn't pick up enough flavor. Maybe fresh dill next time?
This recipe was delish! Note that the spice mixture is not for marinating, but it's more of a thick sauce for topping the salmon during cooking. We did ours on the grill and served with the leftover sauce. Very good.
EXCELLENT!! This is the perfect recipe as shown - no changes!
Awesome! I opted to include all of the option ingredients. I should have added the soy sauce at the very end, my sauce got a bit runny. I didn't even need to add water after adding some lemon juice and the soy sauce. Delicious sauce and perfect moist, flakey salmon. It's a cooold February here in Wisconsin so no grilling - worked great in the oven. Looking forward to trying it on the grill!
I have made this recipe so many times, I've lost count. It is my families favorite Salmon recipe. I have never made it on a plank, however. I just grill it on a piece of foil. A real treat!!!
This was an absolute hit! I made it for my boyfriends family out at the cabin. We all loved it! I changed a couple of things. I made the brine and marinated in a large tupperware container for 2 days before grilling and I also added 3 gloves of fresh garlic minced - I'm a garlic lover :)We always soak the cedar plank for at least 8 hours before using on the BBQ
I used fresh dill and wild caught salmon. I'm not sure a farm raised salmon has the strength of flavor to stand up to the flavors in the sauce. Also, I think make sure to plank it--I think the cedar adds to the flavor balance. Next time, I might reduce the sugar--salmon as a fish doesn't generally need it. This is my go-to recipe for planking, and I think suits NW caught wild steelhead salmon very well.
