Simple is divine. This very old method of cooking fish celebrates the pure, clean taste of fresh salmon.
1 whole salmon fillet, 18 inches long (about 2-1/2 pounds)
1 tablespoon lemon zest (zest of 1 lemon)
3 sprigs fresh dill, snipped
Salt and pepper
Lemon wedges
Cedar-Planked Salmon on the Grill Recipe at
Immerse an untreated, 20-inch cedar plank suitable for cooking use in water; soak at least 1 hour or up to 1 day. Place salmon fillet, skin side down, on soaked plank. Sprinkle with lemon zest, dill, salt, and pepper.

Place planked salmon in center of cooking grate. Grill 25 to 30 minutes or until salmon is opaque in center and flesh flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with lemon wedges.

Make sure the plank you choose is virgin cedar. Buy one specially made for food preparation, usually sold in cookware stores.

The absolute best way to celebrate the pure salmon flavors of this dish is with a crisp brut or extra dry Champagne.

Super and sooo easy
This is a terrific recipe. I didn't have any dill on hand, so I used marjaram. I love salmon, and eat it about twice a week, so all easy recipes are most welcome. Be sure to let the plank soak for a long time, as this is what smokes the fish.
