Cedar Plank Salmon

We've been trying to eat more fish to get those good omegas in us that we keep hearing about!! I just love this Cedar Plank Salmon ... and surprisingly so does our 2yr old. It's a simple and nice way to grill up some salmon.

Also, I have to give most of the credit to my resident GrillMaster, my husband, who does all our grilling and BBQing. Below are his directions and what you'll need:

Cedar Plank
Salmon Filets
Kosher or Coarse Salt 

1) Soak cedar planks in water for 1 or 2 hours. You soak them to help them not catch on fire in the BBQ, and as well to create some steam when grilling. If you soak them more than 2 hours the cedar flavoring lessens.
2) Buy some nice salmon fillets. We buy ours from Costco and it's skinless, which is what I prefer, but skin is fine as well.
3) Fire up BBQ. Crank it up to high to get hot, then turn down the burners directly under the salmon.
4) Sprinkle your cedar plank with kosher or coarse salt. This helps the salmon not to stick to the board.
5) Place salmon on salt and season with Club House La Grill Salmon Seasoning.
6) Place salmon in BBQ (remember to turn down the burners directly under to prevent board from burning), close lid and try to keep it closed for the entire 15-20 minutes of cooking. Of course, open the lid if you think the plank might be on fire!



  1. I adore Cedar Plank Salmon! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love salmon on a cedar plank. Simple and perfect and scrumptious. Making the most of grilling season while it's here.

  3. I've never used cedar planks on the grill. I see them at the store relatively cheap. I'll have to give them a try. We eat salmon once a week. As you say, got to get those omega 3s in.

  4. that salmon looks perfectly done! what a great color, and I bet the cedar added such wonderful flavor to it!

  5. It's gorgeous. I'm not much of a salmon fan, but have been trying to eat it more since it so good for me. I'll have to give this a try. Thanks.

  6. I've been looking at the Cedar planks in Costco every time I shop there. I have to pick them up next time and try it.
    Your salmon looks absolutely perfect.

  7. Your salmon looks delicious! Mouth-watering recipe!
