Spicy Cedar Plank Salmon


Sweet Pea Potato Mash

You’ll Need

  • 6 salmon fillets, each about 6 oz and 1” thick
  • 1 untreated cedar plank
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • ⅛ tsp freshly ground pepper

Prep and Cook

  • The morning of the dinner party, submerge the cedar plank in water, weighted down with a heavy pot or a glass jar and leave it soaking until you start cooking.
  • Rinse the salmon under water, then pat dry with paper towels.
  • In a small bowl, mix together chili powder, mustard, cumin, sugar, salt and pepper.
  • On one side of the salmon fillet, rub spice mixture evenly.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high.
  • Place the plank on the grill, close the lid, and heat plank until it smokes.
  • Place the salmon on top of the plank and close the lid of the BBQ.
  • Cook until salmon is firm to the touch and the top of the salmon is browned, approximately 10 minutes.
