Ingredients

  • 1 (3.0 pound) whole fillet of salmon, skin on, scored (up to but not through the skin) and cut into serving pieces
  • 6 (tablespoon) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 (cup) fresh dill, minced
  • 2 (teaspoon) salt
  • 1 (teaspoon) black pepper
  • 1 (teaspoon) lemon zest
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges for garnish

Directions

  1. Soak an untreated cedar plank (or planks) large enough to hold a side of salmon (5 to 7 inches wide and 16 to 20 inches long) in water. Keep it submerged in the water with a heavy item (such as a brick) for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat a grill to medium high heat. Meanwhile, mix oil, garlic, dill, salt, pepper and lemon zest; rub over salmon and into scored areas to coat.
  3. Place soaked cedar on hot grill grate, close lid, and watch until wood starts to smoke, about 5 minutes. Transfer salmon to hot plank, turn burners to low, and cook covered until salmon is just opaque throughout (130 degrees on a meat thermometer), about 20 to 25 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes; serve with lemon wedges.

    Good flavor but one major problem: I was waiting for something else to finish cooking and so I tented the salmon to keep it warm until the other item was done. It kept right on cooking (I think b/c it was on the hot plank) and ended up turning out pretty dry. My bad. Tip: never overcook salmon!
