"I live in Alaska and have 3 sons that love to fish. I have had to come up with some pretty creative ways to prepare salmon, this is by far my family and friends favorite way to eat fresh salmon. I soak an untreated cedar plank in water and bourbon while they are out fishing for the day and fix the barbeque sauce so that's it is ready to get grilling....." — JMCCURTAIN

Thank you for sharing. This was awesome. Instead of grilling; since we are in apartment, I baked the salmon for 25 min at 350 and it turned out wonderful.
We thought it was way to peppery and we usually like spicey. We liked the other flavors and might make it again but adjust it a bit.
I made this in a skillet (didn't have a plank)and my husband said it was the best salmon he ever had!
AWESOME! I will make this again and again! Yumm! And don't be afraid of the cayenne pepper it's certainly not too strong (my husband agreed and he doesn't care for really spicy things - I do though). We cooked exactly by recipe and on a cedar plank on gas grill! It was out of this world - one of the best salmon dishes I've ever had!
My husband and I love this recipe. Thank you so much.
It is a KEEPER!
Question: some have mentioned plank salmon
cooking using a kitchen oven instead of outside grilling.
How do you preheat the plank and cook the salmon without
having your home filled with SMOKE?
VERY GOOD!! Didn't change a thing. It was a little spicy when tasting alone, but was perfect once on the salmon. It had just the right amount of spicy sweet flavor. I put salmon on top of whole grain rice, then poured a little of the left over sauce on top. FANTASTIC!
I made this recipe last night for the wife and I. The taste was excellent. My wife has declared it her favorite salmon recipe to date. I served it over white rice and mixed some of the sauce into the rice as it cooked. I did as some others suggested and brushed salmon with sauce 3-4 times as it cooked. Otherwise I did not open grill at all. Poured a genourous amount of sauce overtop all seconds before eating. Only real modification was that i used a alder plank rather than a cedar.
I LOVED this recipe. Only thing that I added was peppercorns on top and baked for 25 minutes. I basted the salmon a few times while the sauce thickened and had leftover, so we had enough to dip each piece of salmon in the sauce. SO FREEEKING DELICIOUS! I seriously just wanted to drink the sauce.
