Is there anything more delicious than fresh, grilled seafood? The cedar plank bed infuses the salmon in this recipe, giving it an added depth of flavor and smokiness that’s irresistible.
- Soak the cedar planks in water for at least 1 hour, keeping them submerged.
- In a bowl, combine the olive oil, sugar, soy sauce, and ginger to make a glaze.
- Prepare your grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Brush the glaze evenly over the salmon.
- Set the soaked planks on the grill for a few minutes, until they begin to smoke, adding water if they seem too dry. Place the salmon fillets skin side down on the planks, sprinkle with fleur de sel, and close the lid of the grill. Cook for 15–20 minutes, checking often, until the salmon is done to your liking. If necessary, cook for an additional 10 minutes or so.
- Place the salmon on a serving plate, sprinkle with the scallions, and season with pepper. Serve immediately.
