Memorial Day Grilling with Styles: Maple syrup cedar planked salmon

Posted: Updated:


2 1/2 lbs salmon filet boneless skinless
1 or 2 cedar planks
1 cup maple syrup
Coarse ground fresh black pepper
Kosher salt
1/3 chopped chives


Depending on how you want to serve your salmon will determine how many cedar planks you'll need. Follow the instructions for soaking, usually an hour or more. You'll want your coals to be medium or less, not to hot. In a glass or ceramic dish soak you salmon with a 1/2 cup of maple syrup for 1 hour. Put the other half in a sauce pan and reduce by 1/3 over a medium heat, you'll use this for glazing. Place the salmon on what was the skin side on the cedar plank and season with coarse pepper and kosher salt. Now put the plank over the coals, close the grill but be sure to check on it so the wood is not burning. If it does use a mister to put it out and move away from that direct heat. The salmon should take 7 - 10 minutes to cook depending on its thickness, top with maple syrup glaze and chives.
