Cedar Planked Salmon

Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon with Coffee Brown Sugar Spice Rub
Makes 1 side of salmon – about 10 portions
Ingredients
1 cedar plank – soaked in water overnight
(rather than buying the small planks of cedar at a retail grocer, we get untreated 6 ft 1×6 planks of cedar from
the lumber yard and have them cut into 2 ft sections)
1 side of Scottish Organic Salmon, pin bones out, skin removed
1 ½ cups coffee brown sugar spice rub (see recipe)
Drizzle of olive oil
Method:
1. Generously season all sides of salmon with the coffee brown sugar spice rub. Let sit, refrigerated, for at
least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
2. When ready to cook, heat a gas grill to medium heat. If using wood (oak, mesquite, avocado, or fruit
wood), allow wood to burn down to a steady coal – about 1 hour after lighting.
3. Drizzle the wood plank with a little olive oil, and lay the salmon on the wood plank. If part of the
salmon belly extends beyond the plank, you can cut that part off along the length of the salmon and
lay it back on top of the belly it was cut from. This will also make the salmon side all a similar thickness,
and it is what we do at Main Course.
4. Lightly drizzle the top of the salmon with olive oil.
5. Grill over medium flame for about 35 minutes or until the salmon is cooked to medium. You may need
to cover the salmon with an inverted hotel pan or tent with aluminum foil to help cook the top of the
fish.
