1 Salmon filet or steaks
Ginger Soy Marinade
Fresh dill weed fronds, whole
InstructionsMix up the Ginger Soy marinade. Marinate fish for about 30-45 minutes (while egg is heating)Heat egg to about 400F dome temperature. Rig the egg with firebricks and/or pizza stone in a configuration to protect the plank from the direct heat of the fire. Rub olive oil all over the alder plank to season it. Put foil on underside only of the alder plank and place in the egg protected by the bricks. Let plank heat for 20-30 minutes.Place dill weed fronds on top of the alder plank, then lay the salmon on top of the dill, skin side down, if a fillet. Brush with additional marinade once or twice while roasting. Roast about 45 minutes until done. Don't over cook.I also added a few soaked alder wood chips to the fire.
Serve on the plank, and enjoy.NotesAlder planks can be ordered from www.cooksnook.com for about $31.
The plank is a solid piece of alder wood. The Alder plank is 7" wide, 17" long, 1 ½" thick and just fits the large egg. All edges routed with a round over bit. It has an oval inset 14 ¼" long by 5 ¾" wide, 5/16" deep. It is reinforced with a steel shank on both ends to keep the plank from splitting in the heat. The holes are ¾" across and 5/8 + deep, centered about ¾" + from the ends of the plank. It has a ¼" by 6" long double threaded rod, a washer in the cavity and nuts to hold it together that ned to be tightened before each use. The plank is reputed to last about 4 years, although is says you are not supposed to use it in a grill or over a direct fire.Number of Servings: Time to Prepare:
