Alder Planked Salmon
Recipe Type: Main
Author: Grill Dome Admin
The flavor imparted by the plank to the fish is more subtle than a regular hot smoke, but it really was some of the best salmon I’ve ever had. Next time I might even use a lighter marinade to let the plank flavor come through a little more.
  • 2 sides Alaska Salmon
  • 2 Planks Alder
  • 1 batch Simple Salmon Marinade
  1. Marinate Salmon for half an hour.
  2. I got the plank at the fishmonger’s in town, although I’m certain you could get this elsewhere for cheaper.
  3. I soaked the plank for 2 hours and put it on the GD rack at 450 for 5 minutes, with the side to hold the salmon toward the coals. Then I flipped the plank, put the salmon on for 10 minutes. The plank will start smoking in short order. I had read about problems with plank catching fire, but it didn’t happen.
