- 1 Alder plank
- 1 (1 ½ pound) salmon fillet pin bones removed
- 1 large lemon
- 2 tbsp. fresh chopped Italian Parsley
- 1 minced clove of garlic
- 1 tbsp. fresh chopped chives
- Coarse salt and pepper
- Soak Cedar plank in water for at least 30 minutes
- Make sure all pin bones are removed from salmon, cover salmon with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use
- Drain plank and grill over medium-high heat (about 375 degrees F) until grill marks appear, usually about 3 minutes. Remove from the grill and place salmon skin side down on the plank over the grill marks.
- Chop Italian Parsley, chives and garlic and add to a small bowl. Stir all together. Sprinkle over salmon.
- Slice lemon into wheels and lay on top of salmon over seasoning
- Place planked salmon on grill and cover for about 15 minutes or until salmon easily flakes with a fork
A good rule of thumb for cooking salmon is 10 to 15 minutes for most 1-inch-thick fillets. Allow another 10 minutes for each extra inch of thickness.
