Soy-Ginger Cedar Plank Salmon Recipe

Soy-Ginger Cedar Plank Salmon

Serves 6

Cooking salmon on a wood plank is easy to do and adds extra flavor. It can be used on your grill or in your oven.


  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons grated, peeled fresh ginger root
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 salmon fillets (about 5 ounces each)
  • 3 green onions, sliced thin on a bias


  1. Soak 3 wood planks in water 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  2. In a large, shallow dish, whisk together syrup, lime juice, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Place salmon in dish and rub all over with marinade. Let sit 5 minutes before cooking.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Pat wood planks with paper towels and lightly oil top sides. Lay two salmon fillets on each oiled plank.
  4. Turn off heat on one side of grill and place planked salmon on unlit side. Reduce heat to medium and cook salmon in covered grill with indirect heat 10 to 15 minutes. Salmon is done when opaque throughout.
  5. Garnish with green onion before serving.
  6. Cook's Tips:
  7. This recipe also works without the plank. Cook salmon straight on oiled grill over direct, medium heat.
  8. To bake, place salmon (with or without plank) on parchment-lined baking sheet in preheated 400°F oven 10 to 15 minutes.
