Cedar Planked Salmon

Cedar Planked Salmon

Cedar Planked Salmon

Yield: Serves 4


1 ea. untreated cedar shingle
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
 1 1/2 lb. center cut salmon fillet, skin off and pin bones removed
1 ea. lemon wedge


Oven Temperature: 525-575 degrees

  1. Rinse and then soak the shingle for about 15 minutes in water.
  2. Flame Height: 3

For easy serving, slice almost all the way through the fish into portion sizes. Rub the salmon with a little oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle a little oil on the cedar shingle as well, to ensure that the salmon won’t stick. Place the thickest part of the salmon on the thinnest part of the shake.

  1. Place the shake in the center of the oven with the thick part of the salmon closest to the flame and roast for 5 minutes.
  2. Rotate 180 degrees and return plank to just in front of the flame and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes.
  3. Serve on the plank with a lemon wedge.

Note: Every now and again the plank may go up in flames! Not to worry…remember the best place to have a fire is in your oven. Have your lemon wedges handy and squeeze them over the flame to extinguish it.

This simple Salmon recipe can also be accompanied by Roasted Asparagus and Potatoes or drizzle the salmon with a scented oil or an herb butter when it comes out of the oven.
