Maple Mustard Cedar-Planked Salmon
Sweet and tangy salmon on the grill with a hint of smoky cedar.
Servings 4 servings
- 3 tablespoons coarse ground Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup, the real stuff
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- Salt and pepper
- 4 salmon fillets, about 2 pounds, or 1 piece
- 1 soaked cedar grilling plank
Soak plank in water for 1-2 hours.
In small bowl, whisk mustard, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
Prepare grill to temperature of 350º.
Wipe plank dry and place on hot grill and close lid.
Heat plank for 3 minutes on one side and then flip and heat another 3 minutes until plank begins to smoke and crackle.
Using tongs, take plank off grill and onto a sheet pan. Arrange salmon on plank and brush it all over with maple mustard sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
Return plank with salmon to the grill with tongs. Close lid and grill until just done, about 10 minutes (about 20 minutes if using a whole piece).
Remove plank and salmon from grill and tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Enjoy.
- Good idea to have a spray bottle on hand in case of flare-ups.
- The salmon can marinate in the maple mustard sauce while preparing the grill and cedar plank for about 20-30 minutes and then put on the plank to grill.
