Cedar Planked Salmon

Recipe by  

"This is a dish my brother prepared for me in Seattle. It is by far the best salmon I've ever eaten. I like to serve with an Asian inspired rice and roasted asparagus."

Directions

  1. Soak the cedar planks for at least 1 hour in warm water. Soak longer if you have time.
  2. In a shallow dish, stir together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to one hour.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place the planks on the grate. The boards are ready when they start to smoke and crackle just a little.
  4. Place the salmon fillets onto the planks and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. Fish is done when you can flake it with a fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.

I just made this last night and it was absolutely fantastic! I didn't have green onions so I used minced red onion. My in-laws were so impressed they wanted to have a plank to take home! Costco has them for $8 for a package of 6. The package on the plank states that if it's not too charred you can use is again after cleaning with warm water and letting it air dry. Also, to save time, planks can be presoaked and frozen. I can't encourage you enough to try this incredible recipe! Thank you for the post.

First off, this was my first time eating or making a salmon dish, so we'll discount my opinion - I just don't like salmon. Period. This seemed like a lot of work for the end result. My husband - who does like salmon - was not impressed. Sorry. We just didn't get it.

My boyfriend said this was the best piece of fish he's ever had! I soaked the cedar for about 7 hours then oiled one side. I used a 2.5 lb piece of salmon skin side down. I heated the plank and then put the fish on for 20 minutes, then turned off the heat and kept it on the grill for about 5 more minutes before serving.

Outstanding recipe! I ended up doing in the oven at 350 due to heavy rain. It was still delicious. I highly recommend making this. Thanks for sharing.

There is nothing better in Seattle than cedar planked salmon - unless it is Copper River Cedar planked Salmon. I usually just use olive oil, salt,pepper and dill and people who've never experienced planked fish can't get over the "fabulous" seasoning. Do soak the planks as long as you can 4 to 24 hours - mine always catch on fire. Makes for a spectacular presentation though...

Being an Alaska resident I'm very picky about my salmon. This recipe was excellet. My 2 year old have 5 helpings!! I soaked my cedar plank in hot water for 4 hours and it didn't catch fire like others stated.

The 1/3 cup of soy sauce, I reducted down 1 1/2 table spoons. That made it less salty and kept the great taste.

I tried this on Red Oak planks and with both Salmon (with skin) and Halibut. Salmon had the most flavor while Halibut had a very delicate texture. Kids liked Salmon better, husband preferred Halibut. Neither Salmon nor Halibut soaked too much of the sauce - the sauce remained more on the outside. The plank didn't omit too much smoky flavor - didn't actually smoke at all on our Webber gas grill
