Cilantro Pesto:
1/2 C loosely packed fresh cilantor
3 TBS vegatable broth
2 TBS sliced almonds
2 TBS shredded parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic

4 Salmon fillets (about 4 oz. ea.) rinsed and patted dry
1/4 C sliced almonds.

Soak cedar planks for a couple hours. Heat egg to 425* and stabilize.

In a food processor mix the pesto inredients for 15 to 20 seconds, or until slightly chuncky. Place fillets on plank and spread the pesto evenly over the top of the fish. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup almonds.

Cook direct for 10 to 12 minutes or untilthe fish flakes easily with a fork.
