Cedar Planked Salmon
3 (12 inch) untreated cedar planks
⅓ cup soy sauce
⅓ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
¼ cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 (2 pound) salmon fillets, skin removed
Step 1: Soak cedar planks for at least 1 hour in warm water. Soak longer if you have time.
Step 2: Stir together soy sauce, vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, green onions, ginger, and garlic in a shallow dish.
Step 3: Place salmon fillets in soy mixture and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to 1 hour refrigerated.
Step 4: Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place planks on the grill grate. Heat planks until they start to smoke and crackle just a little.
Step 5: Remove salmon from marinade and place on planks; discard marinade.
Step 6: Close grill cover. Grill salmon until it flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes; salmon will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.
