  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Soak the cedar plank in water for at least 2 hours and up to 12.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), or see Footnote for grilling instructions.
  3. Place the salmon on the plank, skin-side down. In a small bowl, stir together the sesame oil, brown sugar, dill weed and sesame seeds. Stir in just enough water to make it liquid. Season with pepper and soy sauce if desired. Spoon the mixture over the salmon so it is fully coated.
  4. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the fillet can be flaked with a fork.

Footnotes

  • Grilling Instructions:
  • Preheat a grill to medium heat. Place plank with fish on the grate and cover. Grill for about 25 minutes, or until fish can be flaked with a fork.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Meh. It was decent at best. Needs more flavors. I marinated the fish for an hour and it still didn't pick up enough flavor. Maybe fresh dill next time?

This recipe was delish! Note that the spice mixture is not for marinating, but it's more of a thick sauce for topping the salmon during cooking. We did ours on the grill and served with the le...

EXCELLENT!! This is the perfect recipe as shown - no changes!

Awesome! I opted to include all of the option ingredients. I should have added the soy sauce at the very end, my sauce got a bit runny. I didn't even need to add water after adding some lemon...

This was an absolute hit! I made it for my boyfriends family out at the cabin. We all loved it! I changed a couple of things. I made the brine and marinated in a large tupperware container for 2...

I used fresh dill and wild caught salmon. I'm not sure a farm raised salmon has the strength of flavor to stand up to the flavors in the sauce. Also, I think make sure to plank it--I think the...

I have made this recipe so many times, I've lost count. It is my families favorite Salmon recipe. I have never made it on a plank, however. I just grill it on a piece of foil. A real treat!!!
