Grilled Plank Salmon

I have never made a Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon before, so when I was sent a wonderful gift of Cedar Planks and seasonings from Fire and Flavor, I was thrilled to try it. I love seafood and fish, lucky for me, I live on the water. The only fish my kids will eat is Salmon, so I just had a feeling they would love this way of grilling the Salmon. It is super easy and delicious.Fire and Flavor also sent me a Coffee Rub for meats and Salmon. I rubbed some on the salmon and off it went on the grill!

Salmon was delicious with Fire and Flavor Ancho Chile spices on hand cut fries.
Cedar planks have to soak under water for at least one hour.
This is the yummy coffee rub made of Chili Pepper, other spices, pure ground coffee, brown sugar, and salt.
Soak Cedar Planks under cold water so that they don’t catch on fire on your grill!
I placed a big bowl full of water on top of the planks so that the planks would be submerged.
Place your lovely filet of Salmon on the plank.
Rub Coffee Rub all over the salmon. Rub, rub, rub, that’s why they call it a rub….
Salmon is ready to go on the grill.
Set grill at 350 degrees or Medium setting. The grill’s temperature kept raising to 400, so I would try to moderate it so that the Salmon would stay moist. Cook until Salmon is firm to the touch.
Verdict: I liked the coffee rub flavor, it tasted sweet and was a great combination on the Salmon. The Salmon was very moist. Pair it with a Chardonnay, delicious!

 Would I make it again? Yes I would. Another way to use this rub is to make a marinade with orange juice, Olive oil and coffee rub and let Salmon set in marinade in the refrigerator for a couple hours. This post has been linked up these wonderful blogs!Photobucket

  1. This sounds so wonderful. We just recently discovered salmon – neither of us thought we liked it very much but as is true with most foods, it's all about the way it's prepared. I have to try this coffee rub that you recommend – marinating with olive oil and OJ sounds great too! We don't have a cedar plank – sounds like a good Father's Day gift! Thanks for the idea and sharing on Mangia Mondays! 🙂 🙂

  2. Lisa, I think you and Mark will really enjoy this recipe. I was always intimidated by the Cedar Plank because I thought it would be difficult, but I was so wrong, very simple and very delicious! No fish falling through the grills! Nettie

  3. This sounds really nice. Your instructions were great and I am anxious to try that rub. I'm new here, so I took some time tobrowse through your earlier posts. I'm really glad I did that. I like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  4. Great article. I've enjoyed this contribution. Its nice to see every questions answered in a blog post like this. I will add this post on my blog and link to it. Thanks for a clear informative post, I've learned a lot. I hope to see videos though as I can be A.D.D and reading articles is not my favorite thing to do online. So what I do sometimes is just print the whole thing and read offline.
