Cedar Plank Salmon with Dill Sauce

Tonight we had salmon on a cedar plank. This recipe comes from Canadian Living. I pretty much followed the recipe exactly, however we ran out of propane sooo I had to turn to the oven…which I didn’t want to do in this heat!! However it turned out great!

-          1 cedar plank
-          2 salmon fillets (about 1 lb)
-          2 tbsp oil
-          ½ tsp grated lemon zest
-          2 tbsp lemon juice
-          1 tbsp chopped green onions (or chives)
       -          2 tsp Dijon mustard (I used honey Dijon, it worked just as well)
-          1 pinch each salt and pepper
Dill Sauce:
-          ½ cup sour cream
-          2 tbsp finely chopped cucumbers
-          1 tbsp fresh chopped dill (or ½ tsp dried)
-          2 tsp minced green onion (or chives)

  1. Prepare cedar plank by soaking in water for at least 30 minutes and place salmon fillets on top.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk remaining Salmon ingredients together and brush onto fillets.
  3. Place plank on grill over medium-high heat for about 20 minutes (or until fish flakes easily when tested). Occasionally brush with remaining lemon mixture. 
  4. Meanwhile, combine Dill Sauce ingredients in a small bow. Serve salmon with dill sauce.
**Tip: If like me you run out of propane…you can place plank in a preheated 425oF oven for about 15 minutes!!!!
