Cedar Plank Salmon~Ginger/Soy


Recommended Posts

Everyone likes this recipe when I prepare it.


Skin on Salmon filets coarse ground salt and pepper, sprinkle with Ginger Powder and soak in Soy Sauce meat side down 1-2 hours. Start at 400*  shut vents don't get below 350*. Cook until flesh separates with poke. I served with wilted greens and mashed taters

I'm always looking for plank salmon recipes that don't involve sweet, sticky glazes, and his one looks good.  

Thanks Erazoner, you may like Chef Paul's salmon spice, http://www.chefpaul.com/site.php?pageID=286&iteminfo=1&productID=178


McCormick and Durkee/Tones Bros also make a Salmon Spice Blend that are very good also.

Great looking meal!


Did you have a diffuser plate during the cook?  I am new to kamado, and it only makes sense to me that there would be a diffuser plate under the plank, but a lot of recipes and pinterest (my wife's idea) show planks on the main grill with no plate underneath. 


I have been grilling salmon on cedar planks on my gasser for 10 years now.  Looking forward to trying it out on my BKK this afternoon.  I have a nice filet and some soaked planks just waiting!

I use a diffuser. If you look at the pic you will see it. It's a 9"x16"x2" cake pan and I have it 1/2 filled with sand. I think many people put the plank on direct heat.


Thanks.  I'm going to go with my instincts and use a diffuser too.


I think the diffuser helps with the convection and protects my plank. My plank is about 6 years old. It's almost time to replace it. I bought a 6' Cedar fence board (untreated)
