Blackened Cedar Plank Salmon is spicy with a smoky flavor from the cedar planks. To balance the flavors the salmon is topped off with fresh pineapple salsa.
Welp, it’s about that time of year where people are going to be firing up their grills and making some delicious barbecue. This is what I love to do! I wouldn’t say that I’m a pro at it like “Hey Grill, Hey” but I think I can hang with your best home cook grillers. I love to grill just about anything, but what I really love is that taste of grilled fish. Especially grilled salmon.
Salmon and Pacific Cod are my favorite fish. But on the grill, it’s definitely salmon. I typically like my salmon with simple flavors like butter, lemon, rosemary. Almost like a Pan Seared Citrus Salmon recipe. It doesn’t take much to please me when it comes to salmon. I love its flavor. But what makes salmon even tastier is the flavor of a cedar plank seeping through. That’s why this Blackened Cedar Plank Salmon recipe with Pineapple Salsa hits all the right flavors in one bite! It’s spicy, it’s juicy, and the pineapple salsa makes it perfect!
How to make Cedar Plank Salmon
Making Cedar Plank Salmon looks more intimidating than it actually is. The method is quite simple actually. All you do is submerge the planks in water for, at least, 60 minutes. To make it easier for you, you can buy some cedar planks here. They are pretty affordable and you can use them more than once. If you do that, the flavor won’t be as potent the second time around.
What can you cook on a cedar plank
Salmon is not the only food that can be cooked on a cedar plank. Not only can you try these Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops on a cedar plank, but you can also try
