Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon image

Salmon did planking before it was a thing! Cedar keeps the fish from getting burned or blackened and infuses it with delectably earthy flavor. Brush with my Awesome Sauce recipe before serving.

Time 45m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 7

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
6 (6 ounce) skin-on salmon fillets
2 cedar planks, 7x12 inch, soaked in water for 1 hour


  • Combine brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Sprinkle over fillets. Arrange fillets 1 inch apart on the soaked cedar planks.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Place planks over the cooler section of the center of the grill, turning the thickest sections of the salmon closest to the fire.
  • Cover and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest parts of the salmon reaches 135 degrees F (57 degrees C), 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from grill and let salmon rest on planks, 5 to 10 minutes.

Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Cilantro Pesto image

Provided by Food Network

Categories     main-dish

Time 30m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

4 (6 to 8-ounce) portions salmon preferably local wild King salmon -skin on or off
Olive oil, to taste
Fresh cracked pepper
Cilantro Pesto, recipe follows
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds) lightly toasted
1/2 lime, juiced
Jalapeno, to taste
Salt and pepper


  • This recipe is for OUTSIDE gas or charcoal plank-grilling.
  • For the Cedar Planks: I use UNTREATED 1 by 8 construction grade cedar cut to the length of the amount of salmon you wish to cook. (I cut mine in 10-inch lengths for 2 (8- ounce fillets)
  • Soaking the planks: Pre-soak cedar planks for at least 1 hour, preferably longer or overnight. Weigh down planks with heavy cans or stones to completely submerge the wood in water.
  • Lightly coat the salmon with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place salmon on cedar plank skin-side down.
  • Turn on your gas grill to high heat. Place planks (loaded up with salmon) on the grill and close lid. Your grill will now turn into an oven/smoker. Cooking time required will vary depending on the size of the salmon. Be careful when you are lifting the grill lid because the burning plank will produce a lot of smoke. Try to keep the lid closed as much as possible as not to lower the temperature inside the grill. When salmon is cooked, remove fish from plank and plunge wood into a bucket of cold water. Serve the salmon immediately with the Cilantro Pesto.
  • Place first 4 ingredients in blender or small food processor and completely puree. Add lime juice, jalapeno, and salt and pepper, to taste.


Cedar Plank Salmon image

Cooking salmon over indirect heat on the grill brings smoky flavor to Bobby Flay's recipe for Cedar Plank Salmon from BBQ with Bobby Flay on Food Network.

Provided by Food Network

Categories     main-dish

Time 2h45m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 cedar plank (6 by 14 inches)
2 salmon fillets (1 1/2 pounds total)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
6 tablespoons brown sugar


  • Soak cedar plank in salted water for 2 hours, then drain. Remove skin from salmon fillet. Remove any remaining bones. Rinse the salmon under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Generously season the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides. Lay the salmon (on what was skin-side down) on the cedar plank and carefully spread the mustard over the top and sides. Place the brown sugar in a bowl and crumble between your fingers, then sprinkle over the mustard.
  • Set grill for indirect grilling and heat to medium-high. Place the cedar plank in the center of the hot grate, away from the heat. Cover the grill and cook until cooked through, around 20 to 30 minutes. The internal temperature should read 135 degrees F. Transfer the salmon and plank to a platter and serve right off the plank.
  • Cook's Note: A direct method to grill the salmon may be used. Soak the cedar plank well. Spread the mustard and brown sugar on the salmon, but do not place the fish on the plank. Set up the grill for direct grilling on medium-high. When ready to cook, place the plank on the hot grate and leave it until there is a smell of smoke, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the plank over and place the fish on top. Cover the grill and cook until the fish is cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 135 degrees F. Check the plank occasionally. If the edges start to catch fire, mist with water, or move the plank to a cooler part of the grill.


Grilled Cedar-Planked Salmon image

Planking is a rather new experience for us. I prepare the food and DH does the rest. This recipe is adapted from kraftfoods.com and is so simple to make. The original recipe called for parsley which I didn't have. I used fresh garden basil and loved it. Serve with rice, fresh bread and a salad for a lovely meal that is sure to impress. Please note: The cooking or prep time does not include the time needed to soak the cedar plank.

Spice Plank-Grilled Salmon image

This is the first time I used a cedar plank for cooking fish -- and this is the best way to grill salmon as far as we're concerned (also lower fat too) - the salmon came out so moist and spiced just right -- the fish doesn't taste spicy at all.

Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon With Garlic Basil Butter image

Time 40m

Yield 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 6

1 cedar plank
1 1/2-2 lbs salmon
1/4 cup fresh basil
1/2 cup butter, softened
6 -7 garlic cloves, minced
salt & pepper


  • Soak your cedar plank in water for 20 minutes, flipping over halfway through soak time.
  • While the plank is soaking, mix together butter, basil and minced garlic cloves, spread on salmon.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat your grill to low, or the right setting for your grill for fish.
  • Take your cedar plank out of the water and place the salmon on top of the plank. Place it on the grill and cook for 20-40 minutes depending on how thick your salmon is.Grill with the lid closed.
  • During the cooking time, if the plank catches on fire, spray it with water.
  • Salmon is done cooking, when it flakes easily with a fork.
  • *Note: Whenever I make this it normally takes around 30-45 minutes to cook on the grill. I constantly check it to make sure the plank doesn't burn & the salmon doesn't over cook.

  • Choose a Grilling Plank. Purchase a plank (or a few) from a specialty cookware store, hardware store, grilling supply outlet, or online. Cedar (like that found in the Wildwood Grilling Cedar Planks, $17.99 for two, Bed Bath & Beyond) lends the most intense, aromatic flavor to salmon, but other woods are excellent for plank-grilling, too.
  • Prepare the Plank. Plank-grilled salmon scores extra flavor from smoke with the convenience of a grill. (Learn how to turn your grill into a smoker for any outdoor cooking adventures you have ahead.)
  • Prepare the Salmon. Leave the salmon filet whole, cut it into serving-size portions, or use individual salmon steaks—there’s no wrong option when grilling salmon on a plank.
  • Prepare the Grill for Direct Grilling. This step will vary a bit depending on whether your grill cooks with charcoal or gas. For a Charcoal Grill.
