Cedar Planked Salmon

Ingredients:

3 (12 inch) untreated cedar planks
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 (2 pound) salmon fillets, skin removed

Directions:
Soak the cedar planks for at least 12 hours in water.
In a shallow dish, stir together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to one hour.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place the planks on the grate. The boards are ready when they start to smoke and crackle just a little.
Place the salmon fillets onto the planks and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. Fish is done when you can flake it with a fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.

This is another recipe from Emily George. We don’t currently have an outdoor grill, but this is a great one to keep on hand for the future!

  1. This salmon can also be marinated in the above ingredients for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator, then cooked for 30 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven. Serve over rice and enjoy!
