Cedar Planks give Salmon an incredible flavor, smokiness and tenderness. Planking is an easy grilling technique to master and adds a bit of sophistication to your backyard get together. We used Fortino Winery’s Orange Zinfandel Mustard but just about any type of sauce is delicious. This Mustard Planked Salmon is easy and delicious.
1-2 Cedar Grilling Planks (prepare according to instructions on packaging) Usually soaking in
water for at least an hour.
2-6 4-6 ounce Salmon filets
Salt and pepper the filets
1 jar of Orange Zinfandel Mustard
Prepare grill, either gas or charcoal, as you normally would heat to medium-high. Clean salmon filets of bones, rinse and pat dry with paper towel. Place salmon skin side down on cedar planks. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper then spread a tablespoon of mustard onto each filet. Place the cedar plank in the center of the hot grate, away from the direct heat. Cover the grill and cook until cooked through, around 20 to 30 minutes. The internal temperature should read 135 degrees F. Transfer the salmon and plank to a platter and serve right off the plank.
