the Ingredients

Cedar Plank Salmon
  • 4 4 salmon fillets
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • 01 Soak a cedar plank in water for at least 1 hour. Use a weight on top of the plank to keep the plank from floating. Once the plank has been soaked, preheat the barbecue for direct cooking.
  • 02 Once the barbecue is preheated, remove the plank from the water and place it on the barbecue above the left-hand burner. Rub the salmon fillets with oil, salt, and pepper. Close the lid and leave the burners on high while the plank is heating up.
  • 03 After around 5 minutes, the plank will begin to smoke and char. Flip the plank over so the charred side is facing up. Place the plank in the centre of the barbecue.
  • 04 Place the salmon fillets on the plank and turn all the burners down to medium.
  • 05 Close the lid and cook the salmon fillets for 10 to 15 minutes (10 minutes for medium rare, 15 minutes for cooked all the way through).
