Everyone loves a good cedar plank salmon (at least we do). Nothing tastes quite as summery and
light as the smokey and savory flavor that the salmon absorbs from the cedar plank. If you’re one
to spend summers in your backyard, enjoying the warm weather and cool drinks, then this cedar
plank salmon will pair perfectly with your already established traditions. The light, bright, and
fresh taste of the creamy dill sauce (inspired by Samantha Ferraro ) will have you wishing that
summer lasted forever. We hope you enjoy!
Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon With a Creamy Dill Sauce
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total: 20 minutes
1 lb portion of wild-caught Salmon
1/2 c plain yogurt
1/2 c sour cream
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Garlic powder, dill, salt and pepper to taste
Soak your cedar plank for 1-2 hours before preparation (the longer you soak, the less likely it is
that your plank will char).
To make your sauce, combine your plain yogurt, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, and
seasoning in a large bowl and stir well.
Once your plank is done soaking, place your salmon fillet on top of it, skin side down. Pat dry
your fillet before seasoning with salt and pepper.
Spread an even layer of sauce over your salmon fillet, and transfer the cedar plank to the grill.
Grill over medium-high heat for 12-15 minutes, or until your salmon fillet reaches an internal
temperature of 145.
Chances are, you will have enough sauce leftover to make another fillet, so go #wild!
