Salmon on a plank, British Columbia

A side of fresh wild Salmon cooked on a locally grown cedar plank. It doesn’t get much more BC than this. I first tasted this inventive dish in Beauty Creek, just North of the Colombia Ice fields. Perfect for the BBQ or over a fire, this is a great tasting, great fun option for cooking Salmon.

1 Salmon fillet(1.5-2lbs. and about one inch thick)

Zest of 1 lemon

2 sprigs fresh dill

1 tspn salt

1tspn Cayenne pepper

lemon wedges

1. Immerse a two foot Cedar plank in water for at least one hour.

2. Brush olive oil lightly over top surface of Cedar plank. Place salmon fillet skin side down on top of plank.

3. Sprinkle the lemon zest, dill, salt, and Cayenne pepper evenly over the fillet.

4. Place the planked salmon in the center of the BBQ grate an inch or two over your coals.

5. Grill for 25 to 30 minutes or until the salmon is opaque in the center and the flesh flakes easily with a fork.

You’re ready to eat!
