Cedar Plank Salmon

Getting the taste of cedar plank isn’t hard at all. Just go to your local Wal-mart or hardware store and pick up some cedar plank. It’s pretty cheap too. I got 2 pieces of wood for only about $4.00 at Wal-mart. All you do is soak the cedar plank in some water for a while and let it burn on the grill for about 4 minutes. Then you place whatever it is you’re cooking on the piece of wood.

This salmon was quite delicious and I could taste the cedar plank. The recipe didn’t call for any spices on the fish at all besides salt and pepper. I had a mix of chile powder, onion powder, cumin, and smoked paprika and just rubbed it on the salmon. With the mango and kiwi salsa on top, I felt like I was eating somewhere in the Caribbean. This is a great recipe to make if you’re trying to eat healthier. We had a salad with cucumbers and tomatoes to go on top of it. I’d make this again.
