ALDER-PLANK GRILLED SALMON


Salmon grilled on Alder or Cedar planks has a delicious smoky flavour. Just season the fish slices with any choice of ingredients you like. This is a great way to enjoy the flavourful grilled fish. Remember to soak the plank in water for at least 2 hours before using it. Using planks is safer for outdoor grilling. Make sure you keep a spray water bottle ready in case the plank catches fire.


Ingredients:
Salmon fillets .... 2
Garlic paste ........ 2 tsps
Lemon juice ....... 1 tbsp
Garam masala .... 1 tsp
Black pepper or cayenne pepper...... 1/8 tsp
Butter or olive oil... 1 tbsp
Salt .............. to taste


Method:

1. Soak the alder plank in water for 2 hours. Meanwhile marinate the salmon with all the ingredients mentioned in the list and set aside.


2. Place the salmon on the soaked alder or cedar plank and grill it at 350 F for 15 to 20 minutes or until done. (The time may vary depending on the thickness of the fish slices.. Keep a check)





3. Serve immediately as it has the fresh smoky flavours.

  5. I have cooked on planks before but don't remember ever seeing alder wood. This must give it a unique flavour.
