Cedar Plank Smoked Salmon Recipe

Serves/Makes: about 1/2 pound for each serving


  • 1 fillet of fresh salmon (about 1/2 pound for each serving)
  • 1 cedar plank (no more than 1/2 inch thick)
  • Garlic salt
  • Dill weed
  • Black pepper
How to cook Cedar Plank Smoked Salmon:
  • Soak cedar plank thoroughly to prevent burning.
  • Place the salmon on the plank skin side down and season to taste (garlic salt, dill weed, and black pepper work well).
  • Place the plank with the salmon on a covered grill on low.
  • You want the plank to smolder on the bottom and create smoke but not to flame up.
  • The cover will retain the smoke and also prevent flame-up. It will take 30 to 45 minutes for a good size fillet of salmon.
  • The plank will get hot enough to cook the salmon through.
  • You do not need to turn the salmon.
  • Enjoy the Smoked Salmon with natural smoky flavors!
