A cedar plank adds so much yummy, smokey flavor to grilled food.  It's no different with this plank grilled salmon, but the pineapple salsa takes it to a totally different level.   It's an elegant presentation that is quick & fresh & will be one of the best things you have ever put in your mouth!

Plank Grilled Salmon

{with pineapple salsa}


2 pounds wild salmon with skin on

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 tablespoon honey

1" piece of ginger, peeled & chopped very fine

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

zest of 1 lemon

1 large cedar plank


preheat outdoor grill
{make sure to soak the cedar plank in water for 1 hour before grilling}

whisk together lemon juice, dijon mustard, honey, ginger, salt, pepper & lemon zest in a small bowl.  

rub the lemon mixture all over the flesh of the salmon.

place the salmon on the wet cedar plank & put the plank on the grill, over indirect heat, for 10-25 minutes.  cooking time will depend on how well done you like your salmon, but about 15-18 should give you a nice medium+.

once fish is done, serve immediately with pineapple salsa.

Love, Cara
