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.
