Simple Cedar Plank Salmon Recipe
Start the week off right with this healthy and delicious salmon recipe. Grilling on cedar planks adds an intense, smoky flavor that takes this dish to the next level. The best part, you can do this on a gas or charcoal grill and it's really easy to execute perfectly every time. Here's what you'll need:
1 cedar plank (6 x 14 inches)
2 fresh salmon filets (1.5 lbs total)
2 lemon wedges
Soak cedar plank in water for 1-2 hours and marinate fresh salmon filets in Soy Vay's Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce for 1-2 hours as well. Fire up your gas or charcoal grill to 375 degrees and place cedar plank on the grill. In the meantime, remove fresh salmon filets from marinade and season generously with Chef Paul's Magic Salmon Seasoning. Once you hear the cedar plank start crackling and popping (usually takes 10-15 minutes), flip the plank over and place salmon filets on plank. Close the grill lid and cook for 20-30 minutes depending on the how big the filets are. The internal temperature of the fish should be around 135 degrees. Transfer salmon to a platter for serving, squeeze lemon on top and you're ready to rock.
White Wine Pairing
Dirty & Rowdy Chenin Blanc: If you're in the mood for white wine, Dirty & Rowdy's Chenin Blanc is a great choice. This Chenin Blanc was made from organically grown grapes from California's Mendocino County AVA. This is a natural wine made with minimal intervention and no additions save for a tiny bit of SO2 at bottling. The resulting wine is a great expression of California Chenin Blanc. Rich and bold, with notes of stone fruit and persimmon that lead to intriguing mineral undertones of wet rocks, lanolin, and a bit of spice, this is an interesting, drinkable wine with bright acidity. The combination of these characteristics will stand up to the smoke from the cedar planks and cut through the fattiness of your fresh salmon filets. 540 cases produced.
