Cedar Planked Salmon

Okay, so it isn’t Friday, but I just have this craving for salmon that I couldn’t shake.  🙂

I started dinner off with a nice salad of romaine lettuce, chickpeas, feta cheese and Balsamic vinegar and lemon infused olive oil.  It was a great start for dinner while the salmon was cooking on the grill.


I found a great recipe for broiled salmon on the Bon Appetit website, but discovered I didn’t have taragon that was called for….so, I improvised.

Soak cedar planks for at least 1 hour.

Turn on grill and heat to high.

3/4 cups mayo
1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
6 TBSP chopped fresh rosemary (substituted for the taragon)
6 TBSP chopped chives
2 TBSP brown sugar
2 TBSP lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest

Mix above items together.  Set 1/2 cup aside for serving with salmon.

6 6 oz. Salmon filets

Top fish with remaining sauce, place on planks and cook on grill for 15 minutes, or until opaque and flakey.


Serve with veggies of your choice.  Tonight I made broccoli from the church garden.


Dessert was a couple of the wonderful blueberry cookies I made yesterday.  Those things are absolutely addictive!
