Cedar Plank Salmon

What’s for dinner? I’ve taken this cedar passion to a whole new level. Now I’m cooking on it. So, have you all heard of grilling salmon on cedar planks? I had and finally tried it on a camping trip earlier this year. It’s pretty simple and very DELICIOUS!

First, we soaked the cedar planks in the lake our site was on for 1-2 hours. While we were waiting, we enjoyed a couple beers (from the cedar-clad keg cooler).

 A pot of water would work too.

After soaking, so they wouldn't burn so quickly, we placed them on the grate with the salmon filets on top, skin side down.

 Mmmm...

We cooked the salmon 12-15 minutes after covering the filets with aluminum foil.

 The aluminum foil kept in some of the heat to cook the salmon from all sides.

When the salmon flakes off the skin with a fork, it's time to eat and enjoy.

 The cedar plank doubled as a plate.

Since we were camping, we ate directly from the cedar plank. When we were done the 'plate' went into the fire.
