Memorial Day Grilling RecipesCedar Planked Salmon

This 5 star recipe has received 248 reviews on and is so simple to prepare. The cedar plank (available on the barbecue isle at most grocery chains this time of year) gives the salmon a delicious smokey flavor while you grill it. Serve it with seasoned rice and veg or with cole slaw and potato salad. Either way, it’s a healthy treat the whole family will love. Ingredients:

  •     3 (12 inch) untreated cedar planks
  •     1/3 cup vegetable oil
  •     1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  •     1 teaspoon sesame oil
  •     1/3 cup soy sauce
  •     1/4 cup chopped green onions
  •     1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
  •     1 teaspoon minced garlic
  •     2 (2 pound) salmon fillets, skin removed


  1.  Soak the cedar planks for at least 1 hour in warm water. Soak longer if you have time.
  2.     In a shallow dish, stir together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to one hour.
  3.     Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place the planks on the grate. The boards are ready when they start to smoke and crackle just a little.
  4.     Place the salmon fillets onto the planks and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. Fish is done when you can flake it with a fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.
