This is a favorite all summer long. The cedar  really brings out the best in the salmon . It’s also very easy, and husband friendly. Actually, I have to credit my husband for this one, once the salmon is seasoned  and on the plank, he’s in charge. Leaving me free to enjoy a glass of wine while he cooks. 🙂

Lemon & Dill Cedar Plank Salmon
Print Recipe
This is a great way to cook salmon on a gas grill, no need to pre-soak the wood.* The cedar plank serves two purposes, imbuing the fish with a wonderful smokey flavor and helping to distribute the heat evenly.

  3. Place the cedar plank on the preheated grill. Close the lid, hubs can grab a beer, and let the fish cook about 15 minutes.
