Cedar Planked Salmon
Ingredients for Cedar Planked Salmon:
1 fresh side of salmon
2 t. lemon pepper
2 - 3 fresh lemons
Soak a cedar plank in clean fresh tap water for 20-30 minutes before preparing. The ones I use are approx. 6" x14" x 3/4" . Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Check the salmon in the thickest portion by lifting it towards the center with a fork to see if it flakes. Squeeze the juice of 1 of the lemons across the length of the fillet. Return to the oven if it needs further roasting. Check in 5 minute increments as not to over cook. When it flakes remove from the oven and let it rest 10 minutes tented loosely with foil.
Serve with lemon wedges and a side salad.
Note: We scrub the cedar planks with salt and a brush. Rinse well and set aside to dry completely. After drying store until next time.
