Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Cedar Planked Salmon

A little bit of the Pacific Northwest in So Cal tonight. Cedar planked salmon with honey/Dijon glaze. Followed the recipe from The Big Green Egg Cookbook but cooked for 23 minutes at 400 degrees dome. 15 minutes does not quite get it done and even at 23 or 25 the fish is not overcooked and is moist as all get out. This recipe is a keeper. The weather is warm enough to enjoy the meal outside wearing shorts and t-shirt for the first time this year. How do my sons friends know to show up just as the fish is coming off the Egg? That's o-k. Their compliments to me are like applause to an actor, or laughter to a comedian.

    Nice cedar plank salmon, always a treat. A few years ago, started using a 50/50 mix of lemon juice and olive oil, with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Here in the pacific north west it is so cool. wet and windy we enjoyed some crock pot chile because even the dog will not go outside... Hope you enjoyed your salmon..

    A favorite of ours as well. We like it with thinly sliced garlic and Kosher salt on top.
    Put on foil then on top of plate setter. 250 for an hour using hickory and pecan.
    In OKC the best Salmon is key. Only a couple of Mongers that are restaurant 
    suppliers.

    Wish I were wearing shorts and eating outside. It's cold here in Atlanta!

  • Looks good, have you ever tried sliced peaches? Slice them cover with olive oil and grill them on the salmon.
