Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon
by Jes Mostek
serves: 4
  You can get a smokey, wood-fired flavor on any grill by using a cedar plank! This is a perfect way to grill salmon-- no flipping means no crumbling and depressingly lost fish. You may want to prepare more than this recipe calls for because you'll love it that much!
  1   cedar plank
  2 lbs.   salmon slab or fillets
    olive oil
    fresh cracked salt and pepper
  2   lemons
  In the morning (or at least half an hour before grilling), fill your sink with clean, soap-free water, and put the salmon plank in the water bath. The plank is going to float, getting only one side wet, so here's my trick: put a plate or some other heavy dish from your kitchen on top of the wood to weight it down.

Thaw the salmon, if necessary.

When you are ready to grill, preheat your grill and go inside to prepare your fish:
Rinse the fish and place, skin-side-down on the soaked cedar plank. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Cut lemons into wedges.

Grill on medium heat for 8-10 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily yet is still moist (cooking times will vary, depending on your grill and on the size and thickness of your fish).

Serve with lemon wedges.
