Cedar Planked Salmon

Created by Julie Van Rosendaal

Cedar Planked Salmon

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 1—1 1/2 lb (750 g) salmon or steelhead trout filet
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil or canola oil, for cooking
  • Glaze
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp grated ginger

How to Make It

  1. Soak an untreated cedar plank in water for at least half an hour — this is easy to do in the sink, just place a pan or other object on the plank to keep it submerged.
  2. Trim your veggies and toss with oil to coat; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the glaze ingredients, if you’re using it, and spread over the surface of the salmon. Otherwise, sprinkle it with salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat your grill to medium-high and place your plank on the grill for about 5 minutes, or until it starts to smoulder.
  5. Place the filet on the plank. Close the lid and cook for about 15-20 minutes, lifting the lid occasionally to check for flares, until the fish is cooked through (fat will rise to the surface, and the edge should flake with a fork).
