  • Arrange medium-hot coals on one side of the grill. Place a drip pan on the other side. Test for medium heat above pan. When ready to smoke, place plank directly over heat on grill rack for 3 to 4 minutes or till it begins to smoke and pop. Turn plank over and place salmon fillet on hot side of plank. Place plank above rack over drip pan. Cover grill. Let salmon plank smoke about 40 to 45 minutes or until salmon begins to flake easily when tested with a fork at the thickest part. (Keep a close eye on plank to avoid burning.) (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Turn off one side of the grill. Place salmon on a 16x8-inch piece of greased heavy duty foil on unheated side of grill. Cover and grill as above.)

Instructions Checklist
  • Remove the planked salmon from the grill. Serve directly from plank with citrus fruits on side. Makes 6 servings.

Tips

We can't think of a better way to enjoy salmon than in this fresh-tasting, healthy Mediterranean recipe. The charmoula, a Moroccan herb-and-spice blend, adds depth to the mild smoke and wood flavor of the fish.
