Looking for a great dish for the summer? This Cedar Plank Salmon recipe cooks up hot and fast and is a great healthy meal for those summer nights when you want to feed the whole crew!


  • Soak the cedar plank boards in water for one hour prior to prepping the salmon. 
  • Slice the whole salmon into four fillets, it is fine to leave the skin on. 
  • Place the salmon fillets on the cedar plank boards with a few lemon slices and asparagus. 

Tip: Apply olive oil directly on the cedar plank side you place the salmon to keep it from sticking. 

  • Apply even coat of olive oil to the top/sides of the salmon fillets. 
  • Apply Caribeque Lemon Garlic Seasoning and Kary’s Roux All Purpose Seasoning: use to taste. 
  • Add Garlic Parsley Butter to the top of each salmon: 1tsp per fillet. 
  • Add dill, parsley and additional lemons to the salmon fillets. 
  • Sprinkle parsley flakes when done to complete the prepping process. 

Grilling directions: 20-25 minutes, internal temperature 145° 

  • Preheat your grill to 400° 
  • Add cedar planks with the salmon to the grill directly over the lump Charcoal. 
  • No need to rotate, allow the grill, charcoal and cedar plank salmon to roast the salmon. 
  • Tip: It’s also okay if your temperature drops: check out the recipe video on YouTube full for temperature control tips. 
  • Cook to internal temperature 145° and remove the cedar planks from the 

Grill and it’s ready for immediate eating. 

  • Tip: take the guesswork out and use the Char-Griller Grills folding probe to easily see what temperature the salon is at. 
  • Enjoy!
