Rate Recipe :

Serves 1 person

Ingredients

 
  • 1 (3 pound) whole filet of salmon, skin on, scored (up to but not through the skin) into serving pieces whole filet of salmon, skin on, scored (up to but not through the skin) into serving pieces

  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/4 cup minced fresh dill

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, plus lemon wedges for serving

Directions

  1. Soak an untreated cedar plank (or planks) large enough to hold a side of salmon (5 to 7 inches wide and 16 to 20 inches long) in water, weighting it with something heavy, like a brick, so it stays submerged 30 minutes to 24 hours.
  2. When ready to grill, either build a charcoal fire in half the grill or turn grill burners on high for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix oil, garlic, dill, salt, pepper and lemon zest; rub over salmon and into scored areas to coat.
  3. Place soaked cedar on hot grill grate, close lid, and watch until wood starts to smoke, about 5 minutes. Transfer salmon to hot plank, move salmon off direct charcoal heat or turn burners to low, and cook covered until salmon is just opaque throughout (130 on a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest section) 20 to 25 minutes or longer, depending on thickness and grill temperature. Let sit 5 minutes; serve with lemon wedges.
