Ingredients
 
 

  • 8 salmon fillets, skinless
  • 2 to 4 cedar planks, make sure they are food grade
  • sea salt
  • 1 lemon, large
  • 1 cup fresh dill, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shallots, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper, or to your taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon

Instructions
 

  • Soak cedar planks in water for 4 to 6 hours. (This is essential to make sure planks do not catch fire, so don't skimp on this step).
  • Preheat grill to high.
  • Mix together all crust ingredients and spread on the upper side (not the skin side) of the salmon fillets.
  • Season the soaked planks with salt and pepper and place on the grill for 3 to 5 minutes with lid closed. They will begin to crackle and smoke.
  • Place salmon fillets carefully on cooking planks, skin side of the fish on the plank. Close the lid and bake the fillets for 12-15 minutes. Check periodically to make sure cooking planks have not caught fire.
  • Have a spray bottle of water on hand to spritz planks in case they do, but it is much less likely to happen if they have been well soaked beforehand.
  • Remove cooking planks from grill and squeeze lemon juice over salmon fillets. Enjoy!

  1. Adjustment Required

    We really enjoyed the recipe. However I think that 3 tablespoons of balckpepper is way over board. I stopped at two and it was a good thing I did. Is it supposed to be 3 teaspoons?

    Too Much Pepper.
    by: Anonymous

    Like a previous poster, I also used 2 not 3 tablespoons of pepper and was gladi did. Even then it was too much, but not awful. I thin it is 3 teaspoons of pepper and I think this website should update the recipe. It would be a shame to waste good salmon.

    Hi Bob,
    The recipe calls for 2 to 3 tablespoons but you can adjust the seasonings to your taste. 3 tablespoons does make it peppery.
