Cedar Wood Salmon with Yogurt Dill Sauce

2012.03.23

Here are the cedar planks sitting in a bottle of white wine. The wine helps give the final product a little bit of a grassy flavor.

My newest baby - a giant 800 square inch grill. It's great.

A nice piece of salmon - one of my favorite types of fish. Just lightly season with salt and pepper.

Place them on the cedar and place on the grill. The top should be closed so that the salmon steams (and yes, I'm aware that the fish is way over cooked at this point - still getting my timing down).

I love my new grill and it's versatility. Today I wanted to try something I've always read about and thought sounded great - cooking with cedar planks. I figure the best thing to do with cedar was fish and salmon was the fish I decided on.

Ingredients:
Salmon
Cedar wood planks soaked in white wine
salt
pepper
olive oil
1 cup of plain yogurt
3 or 4 sprigs of fresh dill
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard

Directions:
Start by soaking the cedar planks in white wine for at least an hour. The longer the better. Get your grill nice and hot (around 350F). Season the fish with salt and pepper and put olive oil on your wood planks. Add the salmon and place on your grill. Cover and allow the cedar to scortch a little and start smoking. While the salmon cooks. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and place back in the fridge. Serve cold, over the cooked salmon
