Cedar Planked Salmon on the Grill is easier than you think! All you need is a grill (you can make in your oven too), cedar planks, butter, Sunshine State of Mind Craft BBQ Rub and Wild Sockeye Salmon. You’ll have delicious cedar wood infused Salmon in under thirty minutes!
- 1 lb Wild Sockeye Salmon
- 4 cedar planks (you can fit more on each plank depending on the size of your plank)
- 1 stick butter, divided into 8 pats of butter, two pats per filet of fish
- 4 tbsp Sunshine State of Mind Craft BBQ Rub (use code Salmon for $1 off)
On your grill, create direct and indirect zones- this is accomplished by either moving the charcoal to one side OR on a gas grill turning two burners on high and leaving the other two off to create DIRECT/INDIRECT zones. Cooking the cedar planks on indirect is using ambient heat, not directly over the flame, that will allow your fish to cook in the heat but without direct flame so the cedar planks do not catch on fire. Aim to heat your grill to a temperature 350-400 degrees.
Soak your cedar planks up to 30 minutes before using them. Heat your grill up and while it heats, place your salmon on the cedar planks on add rub and butter.
Place your cedar planked salmon on the indirect side of the grill and let the salmon cook until it reaches an internal temp of 145 degrees with an internal read thermometer like the thermapen. Pairs wonderfully with my Charleston Style Coleslaw or grilled romaine.
