Salmon is a delicate fish that does well when lightly smoked and gently seasoned. Cooking it on a plank over a live fire gives it a great smoky flavor while letting it hold its shape.

  • Combine butter, garlic, 3 sprigs dill, and salt in a heat-proof dish. Place in the smoker until butter is melted and infused with flavor, at least 20 minutes. Remove from the smoker.

  • Lay salmon on the plank of wood. Brush salmon with the flavored butter. Season with salt and pepper. Place in the smoker and close the door.

  • Cook salmon until easily flaked with a fork, about 40 minutes. Check at 10-minute intervals and baste with butter.

  • Serve garnished with lemon slices, remaining dill, and remaining flavored butter.

Cook's Note:

Bake salmon in the oven instead of a smoker if preferred.

I nice flavor and one variation of cooking with a wood plank. Home Depot actually sells the cedar planks for cooking and they come in a package of 8 for about $7. I myself like to use the cedar plank on a gas grill ( Bar B Q ) with my Salmon covered in Hellman's mayonnaise and sprinkled with the table blend of Mrs. Dash. It's Awesome!!! Read More

Very simple and easy recipe only change; a dash of lemon pepper. The cedar planks add a hint of wood flavor to the fish. Had weekend guests dinner for 6 along with steamed asparagus topped with lemon zest and a brown tomato/avocado salad. My friend Cathy kept quiet apparently she doesn't care for salmon but she loved it! Read More
