This is fun! Neal gave me some planks for Mother's Day and I finally got around to using one. Thanks Neal...I'll be using the rest soon.
Cedar plank (see Hints)
4 skinless salmon fillets, (about 1 pound)
1 medium lemon
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Soak plank in water (weigh it down with a heavy pan) for at least 20 minutes. Turn on outdoor grill to high, or prepare charcoal briquettes. Rinse salmon and pat dry; set aside. Cut lemon in half, zest one half and mix the zest with the ginger, salt, pepper and parsley. Place salmon on plank and spread lemon parsley rub on top. Slice the other half of the lemon and top each fillet with 1 or 2 slices. Grill planked salmon, with lid closed, for 6 to 12 minutes, depending on thickness of fillets. Fish is done as soon as it is opaque and flakes easily.
