Cedar Planked Salmon
- 3 pcs 12-inch untreated Cedar planks
- 1/3 cup Vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 tbps Rice vinegar
- 1 tsp Sesame oil
- 1/3 cup Soy sauce
- 1/4 cup green Onions, chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh Ginger, grated
- 1 tsp Garlic, minced
- 1 (2 lbs) Salmon fillets, skin removed
Soak the cedar planks for at least 1 hour in warm water. Soak longer if needed.
In a shallow dish, stir together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes or up to 1 hour.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place the planks on the grate. The boards are ready when they start to smoke and crackle just a little.
Place the salmon fillets onto the planks and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. Fish is done when you can flake it with fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.
