Preparation
STEP 1

Soak plank in liquid of choice for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

STEP 2

Brush salmon with oil and season well with salt and pepper.

STEP 3

Heat grill to medium-high. Place plank on grill and cover for about 5 minutes, or until plank starts to smoke.

STEP 4

Carefully transfer salmon onto plank, skin side down, and close grill. Reduce heat to medium, or push coals to edges of grill, keeping plank in center. Close grill and cook until just cooked through (15-25 minutes, depending on size of salmon). Remove from grill and serve immediately.

Options
