Hubby's Favorite Salmon

Here is an interesting recipe. It is my husband's favorite salmon recipe and we all love it. I also forgot about it and when he put it on his fishing blog (www.fishingaddictblog.blogspot.com), that is what made me remember it. We have this every time he goes salmon fishing and catches something (we love it when he catches fish).

This dish is made on a cedar plank and it really adds flavor to the food if you have not tried it. Planks also come in alder wood. It is his favorite cooking tool in the world and he does it on the grill outside. Just follow his recipe and you will have exquisite cedar planked salmon that is to die for!!

PLACE SALMON DIRECTLY ON THE HOT PLANK AND ROAST ON PLANK FOR ABOUT 10-15 MINUTES AND BE SURE TO KEEP A SPRAY BOTTLE WITH WATER NEAR BY IF USING OUTDOOR GRILL TO COOK THE SALMON SO IF THE PLANK CATCHES FIRE YOU HAVE SOME WATER TO PUT OUT THE FLAME.

I haven't ever made cedar-plank salmon, but I've hear a lot about it and it sounds amazing! I might just have to try this one...
