Cedar Plank Salmon

>> Monday, April 13, 2009

Here is Sous Chef Matt's Cedar Plank Salmon (adapted from Real Simple Magazine)

It's spicy and sweet, moist and flaky. You may want to add a splash of lemon juice for some acid.

You can purchase cedar planks in the BBQ section of your hardware store.

- 2lb salmon fillet
- 1 cedar plank
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbs canola oil
- 1 tbs dried thyme
- 1 tsp cayenne
- 1 tsp kosher salt

Soak cedar plank in water for 30-45 minutes

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Line a baking sheet with tin foil, put the plank on top of the foil put the salmon on top of the plank

Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl then rub the marinade onto the salmon and lump on any extra

Cook 20- 30 minutes until salmon is cooked through and flaky

Salt the salmon to taste and enjoy!

*For the side I tossed cauliflower in olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt then roasted in a 350 degree oven on a cookie sheet for 25 minutes. SO GOOD!

My dad introduced me to the virtues of cedar plank salmon - but he does his on the grill! Something to think about for summer! goes great with white wine coolies! Actually, I've never had a white wine cooly... no matter what my Dad says!
