1 large salmon fillet -- with skin
hot pepper oil
How To Prepare:
For the cedar planks: I buy a 8' plank that is 8" wide and 1" thick. You MUST buy "Untreated Cedar" planking. Have the lumber yard cut the plank into 10"-12" pieces.
Soak one of the cedar plank pieces in water for at least 2 hours (do this in anything but your kitchen sink!)
Place the salmon fillet skin side down on the plank, brush liberally with hot pepper oil, then salt and pepper to taste.
Place the plank on a hot grill and reduce heat to medium. Grill for about
15-20 minutes (depending on thickness of fillets and how well done you like
it). DO NOT FLIP/TURN THE FISH!
The beauty of this recipe is how simple it is.....you don't have to try to flip the fish (and have it break apart and fall onto the coals!) The plank will burn but you should get two uses out of each plank. When I've used it
one time I scrape off any bits of fish (after plank has cooled) and wash the plank off as best I can with a brush (only on the top side). Wrap the plank in newspaper and put it where the cats and racoons can't get it!
Once you've made salmon this way you won't want it any other way!! Serve with a sour cream/dill sauce if desired.
Anyone who has the guts to try this please let me know what you think!!
After you've done it the first time it isn't as strange. The Indians used
to cook salmon this way.
