We have had cedar planks for grilling in our cabinet for years. Still brand new, never been used. Seemed like it was time to pull them out and give them a go. They even had a recipe on the back, which is super convenient because I had no idea what seasonings to try since I’ve never grilled with a cedar plank before! This turned out so good, one of my new favorite salmon recipes to make at home. Finishing with the honey is what really made this salmon so good. Wasn’t too spicy for the kids either!
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4-6 ounce salmon filets
1 Fire & Flavor Cedar Grilling Plank, soaked for seveal hours
Honey for drizzling
Preheat grill to medium-low heat, about 350 F
In a small mixing bowl, combine rub ingredients. Rub salmon with desired amount of rub and set aside.
Place soaked plank on preheated grill, close lid, and heat for 3 minutes. Using tongs, turn plank over and place salmon on heated side of plank. Close lid and grill for 12-15 minutes or until desired doneness. Remove cedar planked salmon from grill and drizzle with desired amount of honey. Serve immediately.
