Cedar Planked Salmon

There are hundreds of variations to the original Cedar Planked Salmon recipes. Salmon plank-cooks well with any wood flavor and pairs especially well with fresh lemon.

Toppings can vary from Italian type seasonings to Asian flavors. Fish can be marinated prior to planking or basted during cooking time. 

Keeping simple ingredients to a minimum ensures the flavors of the wood smoke will come through in the final product. Don’t forget that simply placing a cedar plank in the oven alongside a fillet of fish will minimize any unwanted lingering fish odors in your home.

This recipe is from Tiffany’s book Plank It! Wrap It!. To buy this book, and many more, visit here.
