gf and me’s cedar plank salmon

You won’t believe how easy this is to prepare—and it tastes great! The salmon is moist and succulent and the rub caramelizes to produce a slightly sweet yet savory coating.


Serve this with gf and me’s spinach salad for a quick and light meal packed with nutrition. Perfect for those warm summer evenings.

What you’ll need:

1/2 of a salmon

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon paprika

Salt to taste

And of course, a food-grade cedar plank!

What you’ll do:

Submerge the plank in water for at least 20 minutes and up to 4 hours.

TIP: You can pre-soak your planks and freeze them for later use.

Preheat your grill.

Combine sugar and seasonings to make a rub.

Place salmon skin-side down on soaked plank and rub with seasoning mixture.

Place the plank on your grill and turn the heat down to low. Close the lid and walk away!

Grill to 135 degrees (about 10 to 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillet. Charcoal grills will take longer.) The salmon should flake easily.

Serve with gf and me’s spinach salad for an amazingly fresh combination of flavours. One of our favorite BBQ dinners!
