With the latest addition of our new branded cedar planks (you can snag these as an add-on at checkout), we thought we’d better share with you one of our favorite cedar plank salmon recipes! Cedar plank salmon is a summer favorite! The smokey, rich flavor that the plank infuses into the salmon will have you dreaming about grilling all. Summer. Long. So when we discovered Samantha Ferraro’s Cedar Plank Salmon with a Creamy Dill Sauce, we knew we had to experiment with it ourselves. The light, bright, and fresh sauce is the perfect accent to that smokey, salmony flavor. If you’re ready to get hooked on cedar plank salmon, then let’s dive in.
Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon With a Creamy Dill Sauce
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total: 20 minutes
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, top with lemon slices, 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!
