Zo and I have never really made Cedar Plank Salmon. We have eating more than a few times and thought we should give it ago. I really think the best I have ever had was at made for us by our friend's Andrew and Jen.  And I think the spoiled us because while ours was tasty it just could not come close to matching theirs!  So while ours is tasty, feel free to experiment around and enjoy!

1/2 lb salmon fillet
1 cedar plank (soaked 2 hours in water)
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)

2 tbsp dijon mustard
2 slices picante prosciutto (diced)
1 green onion (diced)
1 garlic clove (minced)
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp fresh crack pepper

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and sit to side until ready to use.

Heat plank 3-4 minutes on medium high heat grill or until plank begins to smoke. Turn heat to medium

Salt fish, rub in 1/2 of sauce into fish an place on center of plank.  Move plank and fish from direct flame (move up a level on grill.)

Check fish after 10-15 minutes to make sure it is cooking evenly, add 1/2 of the sauce that is left and cook for 10-15 more minutes or until fish is cooked through or surface fat begins to turn white. Remove from heat, add the remaining sauce and serve hot.
