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.
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
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.

Nice share,perfectly done...
I have cooked on planks before but don't remember ever seeing alder wood. This must give it a unique flavour.ReplyDelete
Yes Heidi, it was a lovely smoky flavour.Delete
I like the idea of cooking on alder planks. They would be great for using on the BBQ too.ReplyDelete
This is done in the BBQ also Mina.Delete
I have never used alder planks for BBQ, maybe next time if I find any here.ReplyDelete
If you find it you can try some paneer in the same way.Delete
Isn't barbecue fun in summer in US and Canada? Love how long summer days make it fun to grill food outside and enjoy it. Its the first time I've come across the idea of using a plank to grill fish. It must have tasted awesome with the wood infused aroma.ReplyDelete
Yes Mayuri, the aroma of the wooden plank from the barbecue is really Divine.Delete
