Pacific Northwest Cedar-Planked Salmon: Grilled To Perfection


Welcome to the Pacific Northwest, where the salmon is always fresh and the grills are always hot. Get ready to taste perfection with our cedar-planked salmon.


First, start with a fresh salmon fillet. Make sure it's wild-caught and sustainably sourced. This will ensure the best flavor and quality for your dish.


Next, prepare your cedar plank by soaking it in water for at least an hour. This will prevent it from burning and infuse the salmon with a smoky, woodsy flavor.


Place the salmon on the cedar plank and season it with your favorite herbs and spices. We recommend a simple mix of salt, pepper, and lemon for a classic taste.


Now it's time to fire up the grill. Make sure it's at a medium-high heat and place the cedar-planked salmon on the grill. Close the lid and let it cook for about 10-15 minutes.


While the salmon is cooking, prepare a glaze to add some extra flavor. Mix together honey, soy sauce, and minced garlic in a small bowl. Brush it onto the salmon during the last few minutes of cooking.


Keep an eye on the salmon and make sure it doesn't overcook. You'll know it's done when it flakes easily with a fork and has a nice golden color.


Once the salmon is done, carefully remove it from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. This will allow the juices to redistribute and make the salmon even more tender and flavorful.


Serve your cedar-planked salmon with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables or a fresh salad. The smoky, sweet flavors of the salmon will pair perfectly with any dish.


Congratulations, you have just grilled the perfect Pacific Northwest cedar-planked salmon. Enjoy the delicious flavors and savor every bite. We hope this becomes a go-to dish for all your future grilling adventures.
