What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? A Burst of Flavor: Driving Dill Crazy on Cedar Plank Salmon! Tired of multi-tasking? Here’s a solution to the never-ending question of “What’s for Dinner?” This is the BEST way to grill salmon when you’re at the end of a day that seemed long and demanding. Simply thaw and grill. The supermarket was featuring delicately seasoned Atlantic salmon on a pre-soaked cedar plank. Not only does it taste amazing, but clean-up is a breeze. There’s even enough for a meal later on. Stay tuned.

Preheat grill to 425°. Place the thawed salmon and plank directly on the middle rack. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Do not over cook. The flesh becomes flakey and pink in the center. Serve with your favorite salad or side dish.
