Grilled Cedar-Planked Salmon
35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
7 ingredients
6-8 servings
Planking is a rather new experience for us. I prepare the food and DH does the rest. This recipe is adapted from and is so simple to make. The original recipe called for parsley which I didn't have. I used fresh garden basil and loved it. Serve with rice, fresh bread and a salad for a lovely meal that is sure to impress. Please note: The cooking or prep time does not include the time needed to soak the cedar plank.
