Cedar Planked Salmon with Guacamole

Cedar Planked Salmon with Guacamole

Tips / Suggestions

  • Feel free to make any adjustments to the guacamole. I used lemon, but you could use lime. In general, any type of guacamole will taste great with the salmon.
  • If you don’t have time to soak the plank for an hour, just rinse with cold water, and pat dry. Keep a spray bottle filled with water in case the plank catches fire.
  • You may hearing popping noises when the plank is being charred. This is perfectly normal as water is evaporating. Soon, you’ll be smelling that incredible cedar smoke.

Cedar planked salmon topped with chopped lemon guacamole. You won't want to eat salmon any other way.

Ingredients

  • 2 portions 2 salmon

  • seafood seasoning of choice

  • 2 tbsp 2 avocado oil

  • 1 1 cedar plank

  • Lemon Guacamole
  • 1 1 avocado chopped

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 onions chopped

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 cilantro chopped

  • 2 tbsp 2 avocado oil

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 tomatoes chopped

  • 1 tbsp 1 seafood seasoning

  • 1 1 lemon quarter juiced

Directions

  • Soak the cedar plank in water for 1 hour. While the plank is soaking combine all of the ingredients to make the chopped guacamole.
  • Heat grill to 375 degrees direct. Place the cedar plank on the grill for 2-3 minutes and then flip over for another 2-3 minutes until the plank is slightly charred. It might make popping noises during this time, which is perfectly ok.
  • Coat the salmon with avocado oil and dust with the seafood seasoning.
  • Remove the plank from the grill, place the salmon portions on top of the plank, place back on the grill, and cook until the internal temperature of the salmon reaches 120 degrees (for wild caught). If you'd like the salmon more done feel free to cook longer, I just think this is the perfect temp for delicious salmon.
  • Remove the salmon from the grill, (I leave it on the plank when serving as it creates too much mess to try and remove from the plank), top with the guacamole, and dig in.

Blueberry Jam Cedar Planked Salmon

Blueberry Jam Cedar Planked Salmon

Tips / Suggestions

  • While charring the cedar plank, you may hear some popping. This is perfectly normal. The wood is drying / contracting from the heat.
  • Keep a small spray bottle of water to put out any flare ups on the cedar plank in case they happen. For me it hasn’t happened very often, but you want to be prepared.
  • It’s much easier to use the planks as a serving dish. Sometimes I run into issues when trying to remove from the plank and place on a plate, as it can fall apart or stick to the wood.
  • I prefer to cook salmon to 125 degrees F internal for farm raised. If it’s wild caught I would go to 120 degrees F internal. Either way, cook to your desired doneness.

Cedar planked salmon smothered with blueberry jam and topped with lime slices.

Ingredients

  • 1 filet 1 salmon (roughly 1-1.5 lbs)

  • 1 1 cedar plank

  • 1 1 lime sliced

  • 2 tbsp 2 bbq seasoning of choice

  • 1 cup 1 blueberry jam

Directions

  • Soak cedar plank in water for 1-2 hours.
  • Heat your grill to 375 degrees direct. Place the cedar plank on the grill for 2-3 minutes and then flip over for another 2-3 minutes until the plank is slightly charred on both sides. Remove the plank from the grill.
  • Place the salmon on the cedar plank (skin side down, if skin is attached), dust with a bbq seasoning of choice, and top with a line of lime slices down the entire length of the fish. Place the plank / salmon on the grill. Additionally, pour the blueberry jam in a sauce pot and place on the grill.
  • After the salmon has cooked long enough to nearly reach your desired internal temperature (mine is 120 F for fresh caught) baste with the blueberry jam covering the entire filet.
  • Once the salmon is done cooking, remove from the grill, and dig in. Don't bother trying to remove from the plank. It's much easier just to leave it on the plank and eat from there.
