For the Oven or BBQ. You will not believe the flavor these
cedar planks add to a barbeque Grilled Salmon Filet!
This has got to be the best kept secret for grilling any kind
of fish as well as other meats & vegies & potatos!. Let
the PLANK do the job of seasoning your backyard BBQ meal or holiday
It's easy! Your family and friends will look at you with wonder
and awe! The resulting flavor is truly that amazing.
Chuck says... This is what I do - soak the planks about two hours
(longer is okay) in a bucket of water or in the sink. Put a weight
on top to keep the planks down under the water. Trim your Salmon
filet to fit the plank leaving about 1/2 inch from any edge.
Slather the plank with olive oil. Slice THIN raw onion rings
and place evenly. Salt, pepper and garlic to taste.
Place your Salmon filet skin-side-down on the onions. Slice
a lemon REAL THIN and put a couple on top along with some more
salt & pepper. Get your BBQ REAL HOT. Place the plank down
on the grill and put the cover down.
Check in 10 minutes. Any CRACKLING sound is a GOOD thing.
That means the BBQ is hot and the wood is burning on the bottom.
Soon the flames that are burning the plank will begin lapping
around the edge of the plank. This fire will CRISP the edge of
your Salmon filet all around the edge. Mouth watering yet? Experiment!
Play! Don't be afraid! Once cooked, I take the planks right off
the grill with tongs and put them on a ceramic platter in the
center of the table. Garnish with Parsley or whatever greens
and color you like. Serve with a spatula.
