Salmon fillets, skinless
Olive Oil or flavored oil spray
Lawry's seasoned salt
pepper, preferably freshly ground
Cedar board (1/4 to 3/8" thick)
Prepare the fillets by patting them dry and then drizzling a little oil or spraying with flavored oil
Season to taste on both sides and put into fridge until grill is ready
Prepare grill for dirct heat
When grill is ready, spray one side of the plank with water and apply a little oil to the other side
Place the water-wetted side down and place the fillets on the oiled plank
Cook for 8-10 minutes on one side, then flip the fillets and cook for another 6-8 minutes (depending on thickness)
Try to resist opening the grill during cooking. The smoke and heat will seal the fillets and turn them a mahogany color with great flavor.
Serve with a simple salad and a good wine.
(we have also cooked chicken breasts, butter-flied pork chops, and swordfish this way)
