Cedar Planked Salmon
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 35 mins


  • 3 (12 inch)  untreated cedar planks
  • 1/3 cup  vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons  rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon  sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup  soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup  chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon  grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon  minced garlic
  • 2 (2 pound) salmon fillets, skin removed


  • Soak the cedar planks for at least 1 hour in warm water. Soak longer if you have time.
  • In a shallow dish, stir together the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, and garlic. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to one hour.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Place the planks on the grate. The boards are ready when they start to smoke and crackle just a little.
  • Place the salmon fillets onto the planks and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. Fish is done when you can flake it with a fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill.
