Cedar Plank Salmon with Citrus & Dill

May 22, 2009

We’re on a cedar plank kick these days.  That’s because it’s so dang good!  Plus, the Restaurant Depot has a fresh fish section with some extraordinary prices. Glad I could get this recipe to you just in time for the three day weekend. Now go out and GRILL BABY GRILL!

 

Once again the idea came from here you should check it out.  Be careful with this recipe, because if the citrus gets too soggy on the board and the board is not dry enough, it won’t smoke and that’s a bad thing.  I made a simple salmon with just Memphis Rub (no photos) that we liked better- not that this one isn’t tasty and much more showy!  Just throwing out another option  -  sometimes simple is best. 

 

Can you imagine what this would taste like with Kev & Rose’s Chitina fresh salmon catch’s!?  Maybe some day – a girl can dream!

 

 

In pictures here’s what you need to do:

 

Soak the plank for FOUR hours

Dry the plank out good, but NOT brittle so it catches on fire

Trow on some citrus slices.  This was too much.

Optional to throw on some dill - we thought this would have had more flavor if we used it after grilling on top.

Close the lid and let er rip.  You may or may not need to move it to indirect heat if the board catches on fire,
