Sweet Hot Cedar Plank Wild Salmon

Sweet Hot Cedar Plank Salmon

Our recipe was inspired when we found a sample of Afire’s sustainable wood grilling planks waiting in our mailbox. Although the planks come in a variety of woods, we just can’t resist the combination of subtly sweet, smokey cedar with a steak of wild salmon, (a known aphrodisiac). Of course, any fresh salmon steak will work. But keep in mind that wild salmon has less saturated fat and more flavor than its farmed counterpart. Simple as it gets, this recipe is great to prepare for guests. It takes little prep time and can even be served right off the plank. What could be simpler or sexier?
