We had the most beautiful Mother's Day dinner on Sunday, and this salmon was the centerpiece. The recipe couldn't be easier, and this will be a great go-to grill recipe for the summer.
2.5 lb wild Alaskan salmon filet
Cedar plank (find these at gourmet shops or wherever grilling toys are sold)
Two tablespoons brown sugar
Two tablespoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
*Amended to add: the cedar plank needs to be soaked for at least an hour ahead of time. Major oversight! Thanks for the catch, "Stedman".*
1) Light your grill.
2) Rinse and pat dry the salmon filet. Place on cedar plank.
3) Combine spices well in a small bowl. Cover filet evenly and thoroughly with the spice rub.
