We love fish in our house, we usually eat fresh fish from the Farmers’ Market 4-5 nights a week, everything from Mahi Mahi to Black Cod to Salmon. Using the cedar plank on the grill is my absolute favorite way of cooking salmon. The salmon comes off the plank with a rich smoky flavor and melts in your mouth.

I have a few tips for using a cedar plank when grilling. The first is it’s important to soak your plank for at least 4-5 hours before putting it on the grill. By soaking the plank it makes sure it doesn’t burn. The second tip is that once you finish cooking on the plank, you should clean it off, let it dry, wrap it in plastic wrap and keep it in the freezer until you’d like to use it again. This will ensure a long life for your cedar plank. You can find cedar planks on Amazon or at a Whole Foods or even Ralphs.

Pre-Soaked Cedar Plank

Wrap in Saran Wrap in between uses and keep in the freezer.

We served ours with brown rice (we sauteed some mushrooms and threw in leftover corn and topped with cilantro and green onions) and steamed green beans. A perfect summer meal.
