Last night we enjoyed this very delicious cedar plank salmon. If not over cooked salmon can be a girls best friend. It should be moist and juicy not too dry and flaky. With this rub and the smokin cedar plank our dinner was fabulous! The Other Williams loves to cook on cedar planks.
First soak the plank in water, so it doesn't catch on fire. Then place the salmon on it and put it on the grill. The Other Williams keeps some apple cider vinegar and/or water in a spray bottle to dowse any flames that might catch on the plank. The smoke is great and so is this rub!
1/2 lb Salmon fillet,
3/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp paprika
Juice from 1/2 lemon
3 springs of fresh dill (yes it much be fresh, not dried)
Sprinkle seasonings and squeeze lemon juice onto salmon. Lay springs of dill on top. Carefully place the fillet on the pre-heated plank in the grill, and close the lid. Cook for 15 min at med high or until done.
