With a little advance planning, cedar plank grilling is an excellent way to add much more aromatic flavor to the seafood you cook outdoors. The flavor of salmon is especially well suited to this quick smoking cooking technique.
You’ll want to select a piece of untreated cedar (very important, as you don’t want to impart any chemical flavors to your food) and soak it in water for at least an hour before you plan to grill on it.
Cedar planks for grilling can be found in the kitchen supply aisle of most good supermarkets and department stores, however you’ll also find untreated cedar planks in the BBQ grill area of many hardware stores.
Below is a delicious recipe for Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon With Tropical Fruit Salsa from the folks at Aggie’s Kitchen to help you make the most of this easy and rewarding cooking technique.
This is an improvisational recipe, so feel free to let the relaxed feeling of this recipe express itself when choosing additional spices and side dishes to accompany it.
Ingredients for the Tropical Fruit Salsa:
1/2 cup fresh diced kiwi
