Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon


So excited to share this recipe..a nice break from all the H0liday cooking too!

I made a rub: 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tbsp chili powder, 1 tsp sea salt..Rub in and let sit for 30 min.

You can find the cedar planks at any gourmet store…Soak for atleast an hour in water. Heat grill to med-high. Place cedar plank on grill and close cover, heat for 3 min. Flip over cedar plank and then place salmon on planks..cover and cook for about 10-12 min…. 🙂 Let sit for 5 min loosely covered with foil

I’m serving up sides of skewers of grilled vegetables and Black beans and Brown Rice . I have fresh chives to chop and place on top of Salmon cooked…

Made fresh guacamole with 2 avocados ( donated by friends at work who grow these delicious fruit!) 1 jalapeno seeded and diced, 1 small onion diced, 1 tomato, seeded and diced, 1 tbsp cumin, 1 lime juiced, salt and pepper.

( Hot sauce too if you want to be adventurous) Chill for at least 30 min.

Lemon Dill Salmon

1lb Salmon

1 lemon: halved and on half sliced thin

1/2 bunch fresh dill chopped


Pre heat oven to 350. Place in baking dish and squeeze 1/2 lemon over Salmon and then put 2 lemon slices on top of each salmon and sprinkle with fresh dill and pepper. Bake 20-25 minutes.

Planning Ahead

I planned for tomorrows dinner so that there is no guess work when I get home. I am making Dijon Salmon Cakes over a bed of freshly wilted garlic Spinach. This meal is so healthy in all different aspects, and so very easy to make! Make great leftovers too. Try it out! 🙂 And if you don’t like salmon use crab or tuna…But you’ll be surprised how tasty these cakes are.

I try to plan for at least 4-5 meals a week, and always have a “Leftover Nite”. I can take a meal I made earlier in the week and turn it into something new! For instance I think this week I will reuse the Hearty 3 Bean Chili and turn them into a burrito of sorts! Stay tuned for that later on this week!
