We are still on a grilling kick! Here’s an easy and delicious way to prepare salmon: grilled on a cedar plank!
First, I mixed a marinade of the following in a shallow dish.
- 1 T. tamari sauce (or use soy sauce)
- 1 T. lime juice
- 1 T. ginger
- 1/2 T. garlic
I added 1 lb. of wild, alaskan salmon (flesh side down), covered the bowl, and let it sit in the refrigerator for the rest of the afternoon. Even if you only have 20-30 minutes, it’s okay.
Soak a cedar plank–in your sink, or use a brownie pan-sized dish on the countertop–for about 20 minutes. Also, preheat the grill, set at about medium heat.
When everything’s ready to go, place the salmon, skin-side down, on the cedar plank. Pour the remaining marinade overtop. Place the cedar plank on the grill, close the lid, and come back in 18 minutes. The salmon should be finished–test to be sure. It will flake easily and the flesh should be more opaque than when it was raw.
Enjoy! We served this with roasted brussels sprouts and onions, and agreed that the marinade combined with using a cedar plank was delicious!
