Besides adding smoky flavor, cooking salmon on a plank eliminates the triple pitfalls of grilling fish--drying out, sticking to the grate or breaking when you attempt to turn it. For this healthy grilled salmon recipe, the sweet-salty flavor of the miso-maple glaze counterpoints the buttery richness of the fish.
Equipment: Cedar grilling plank
Tips: Unhulled black sesame seeds are nuttier and more aromatic than their hulled white counterparts. Use them as a garnish, in granola or to crust meat or fish. Find them in Asian markets and specialty grocers.
