  • Cedar planks for grilling soaked in water 30 min
  • Fresh Salmon Fillets
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • Fresh dill or thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place cedar planks in a container filled with water.  Add lemon slices and fresh herbs.  Let soak for 30 minutes.  Remove planks from water.  Place 2-3 salmon fillets per plank.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Place on a preheated 350-400F degree grill.  Watch heat carefully.  Close lid and grill for 10-12 minutes depending on the size of the fillets.
  3. Option:  If you don't have a grill, place the plank in a 350F oven and bake.  You won't get the smoky flavor of the grill, but the cedar flavor should be lovely.
