“Grilling with a cedar plank gives the salmon a subtle smoky flavor.”


    • 1 16x18-inch untreated cedar plank
    • 1 2 to 2½-pound fresh or frozen salmon fillet, about 1 inch thick
    • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh chives
    • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced


  • 1 Soak plank in enough water to cover for at least 1 hour before using. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels.
  • 2 Place fish fillet, skin side down, on the soaked plank. Sprinkle with chives, thyme, salt and pepper. Arrange lemon slices along the center of the salmon.
  • 3 Using a charcoal grill, place salmon on the cedar plank on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Cover and grill for 20 to 25 minutes or just until salmon begins to flake when tested with a fork.
  • Tip: If using a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place salmon on the cedar plank on grill rack over heat. Grill as above.
