Maple Dijon Cedar Plank Salmon - Healthy Choices Recipe

Maple Dijon Cedar Plank Salmon - Healthy Choices Recipe

Tyler Gremban

Healthy Choices Recipe of the Month
Maple Dijon Cedar Plank Salmon

This is one of my favorite summertime grill recipes. The cedar plank gives the fish a subtle depth of flavor that works really well with the sweet-’n’-tangy mustard sauce. You can find cedar grilling planks at your local grocery store.

*NOTE*: make sure your plank is specifically a grilling plank. Cedar you get from a hardware store or your neighbors DIY project may be treated with chemicals that will give your meal a flavor you’re definitely NOT looking for.

Maple Dijon Cedar Plank Salmon
Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 2x 3-4 oz salmon fillets
  • 2 Tbsp whole grain or dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • *optional* dash of cayenne pepper for some heat!

Directions:

Soak cedar plank in water a minimum of two hours

Remove skin from salmon and pat dry

Lightly salt and pepper both sides of fillet and place on cedar plank

Coat top of salmon with mustard sauce

Set grill up for indirect medium-high heat.

Place cedar plank in the center of the grate, but not directly on the heat.

Grill 20-30 minutes or until salmon reaches internal temperature of 135 degrees.
