This is a traditional and very special way of cooking the omnipresent and excellent fresh salmon that you find in Canada or the Pacific Northwest in the USA! You just have to remember to soak your cedar plank or shingle for at least 3 - 4 hours prior to cooking. The soy and orange marinated salmon fillet takes on a wonderful smoky flavour when cooked this way, and marries so well with the slightly tart and Oriental flavours of the cranberry relish. Serve with garlic-roasted or steamed new potatoes, wild rice, asparagus and assorted hot or cold salads. Preparation time includes the time to soak the cedar planks. (Planks can be used several times if soaked well and used over indirect heat. After use, rinse the plank thoroughly with warm water. Use a scrubbing brush if needed!) This planked salmon can be grilled or broiled, cooked in a kettle BBQ or over a wood fire.
