Recipe Notes

  • Don't skip the step of soaking the cedar planks in water for two hours. This step prevents them from burning while the salmon cooks.
  • The fish can be baked in a 400-degree F oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Place the fillets on the soaked cedar plank.
  2. Combine the mustard and brown sugar. Coat the salmon with the mixture.
  3. Squeeze a little lemon juice over the fish. Top with a lemon slice.
  4. Heat the grill to medium-high. Put the plank on the grill, but not near direct flames. Cover and cook about 20 to 30 minutes.
