Marinated Cedar Planked Salmon

I have been cooking so much on the grill lately! Almost every meal in our home is redesigned to be cooked on the grill. The weather has been so picturesque that it would be a shame to heat up the house by cooking indoor, anyway. And so, I’m always looking for new recipes to cook. Just like this marinated, cedar planked salmon. This one’s a keeper!

DSC05402Here’s the grilling plank. It smelled AMAZING, when I took it out of the package.

DSC05403The instructions on the package said to soak it for 2-4 hrs, (but the longer the better), so I soaked it all day long.

DSC05404The marinade I made was super simple too. Equal parts soy sauce, brown sugar and water. It fit so well with the smokiness of the cedar plank. Hmm!

DSC05405I popped the salmon filets into a large bag.

DSC05406Then I let them marinade for 8 hrs.

DSC05415When it came time to grill them, low and slow is always best for a cedar plank.

DSC05416They still cooked in no time, though.

DSC05419They were amazing on a beautiful summer evening.

Marinaded Cedar Planked Salmon

You will need:

1 cedar grilling plank

4 small salmon filets

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup water

Begin by immersing the cedar plank in water and letting it soak for 2-4 hours (or longer, if you have the time!). Next, combine the marinade ingredients and marinade the salmon for a minimum of 8 hrs, or overnight. Cook the salmon of the soaked plank on low on the coolest part of your BBQ for 10-15 mins, until the fish is flaky. Serve immediately and enjoy!
