Cedar-Planked Salmon with Maple-Mustard Glaze

Cedar-Planked Salmon with Maple-Mustard Glaze

Grilling the salmon on water-soaked cedar planks infuses it with a delightfully smoky taste, plus the sauce gives it a golden glaze. If you can't do this outside, bake it on planks in a 425°F (220°C) oven for about 12 minutes.


1-1/2 lb (680 g) salmon fillet
1/4 cup (60 mL) maple syrup
2 tbsp (30 mL) grainy Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper


Soak one 12- x 7-inch (30 x 18 cm) untreated cedar plank in water for 30 minutes or for up to 24 hours; place salmon on top.

In small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, mustard, salt and pepper; brush half over salmon.

Place plank on grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook, brushing once with remaining maple mixture, until fish flakes easily when tested, 20 to 25 minutes. Halve salmon lengthwise; cut crosswise into 6 slices. Transfer to serving platter.

Tip: Check your grocery store for other types of untreated wooden planks, such as hickory and maple.

Servings: 12
