    I like to grill salmon direct with a little olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper. Dome temp at 450 until the flesh is firm. 

    I have done the cedar plank as well with some lemon pepper blend from Sam's Club.

    I just did both tonight for dinner. (Told the wife to buy some salmon, cam with 2.5 lbs :-? )  I preferred the direct grill.  Left a nice crust on the fish.  Mother in Law was the only one to prefer the cedar plank.  It did have a nice taste but I just preferred having that nice crust on there from the pepper and kosher salt.

  • if no skin, should I plank it, regardless of which recipe I use?

    For a 4 lb piece of salmon I mixed 1/4 cup of molasses, 1/4 cup honey, 1/2 cup maple syrup to make a basting sauce. Planked the salmon. Turned under the thin pieces so the whole filet was the same thickness. Basted with the sauce. Seasoned with lawreys seasoned salt and Chef Paul Prudones salmon seasoning. Cooked raised grid at 350 to a temp of 130. Mighty fine eats. ;;)

    Seasoned with DP Raging River. Cooked on a plank direct 300°
  • I use smoke with beef, pork and chicken sometimes. I have never cooked salmon on a grill with success.

    Thanks for all the ideas! They are def keepers. Now I have to see what ingred I have so no trip to store.
