Cedar-Planked Salmon Recipe

CookingAddic First time I tried this salmon recipe, I was amazed how delicious it is. Cedar plank salmon is a classic recipe for the grill. You get all the flavor of the grill with real smoke even if you are using a gas grill with the convenience of cooking a large, delicate fish fillet on a cedar plank. 

This grilled salmon recipe is definitely going to please. One trick is to keep the salmon fillet on the cedar plank the whole time, from the preparation to serving. If you place the cedar plank on a sheet of foil you and put the whole thing on the table. My brother in law made it for the party. So I had to get the recipe to share with you guys


  • 1 piece salmon filet 
  • 2 tsp salmon rub
  • 1/3 tsp salt 
  • 1/3 tsp coriander
  • 2-3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 large lemon (1/3 of the lemon juiced)
  • 1 cedar wood plank

I found cedar boards at Central Market and Fred Meyer. 

Rinse the plank with water to remove any dust.
Fill a sink or other large container with water.
Submerge the plank in the water, placing a weight on top of it. Soak the plank for 4 to 24 hours. One of my readers said she always soaks the planks for 24 hrs and it never catches fire. :-)
Rinse salmon and pat it dry. Squeeze the lemon juice on top of salmon. Slice the rest of the lemon for the top.
Sprinkle with salmon rub. 
Rub it in with your hands. Sprinkle salt and coriander. 
Pour olive oil and spread it on top. Let it soak for 1-2 hrs. 
When wood plank are ready transfer salmon to the board. Top with lemon slices.
Preheat grill for 15 min on high. Put salmon in and close the lid. Cook on high for 5 min. Then lower the temp to med-low. Cook for 17 min. If it catches fire at the end, blow it out turn off the grill. Then let salmon stay covered for the rest of time. I figured out that cook time is 20-25 min is perfect.
