Cedar Plank Salmon

This is an amazingly sweet and smoky-tasting meal.

Cedar planks give this meal a delicious light smokey flavor that is not overwhelming.

Combine that with the sweet seasoning honey and lemon slices and you have a meal that looks beautiful, smells pleasant, and is absolutely savory.

This easy cedar plank salmon recipe will work on a charcoal or gas grill and I have used both successfully.

Cooking Instructions:

TIME TO PREP PLANKS & SPICES: 
 
  • Submerge cedar planks into water and soak for 30 min.
  • Prepare smokey sweet seasoning and set aside.

PREPARE THE PLANKS :

  • Cut the 6 lemons into about ¼ inch slices.
  • Arrange cut lemons onto presoaked cedar planks.  15″ Planks can fit two rows of slice lemons.
  • Place the salmon horizontally onto lemons. If some of the salmon is hanging off the sides, it is ok but try to keep most of it on the lemons. 
  • Cover Salmon with Smokey Sweet Seasoning
  • Drizzle honey over the top of each piece.

SERVE :

  • The skin comes off easily with a sharp spatula. I prefer to serve it without the skin on.
