George’s Alder Planked Salmon Recipe

George's Alder Planked Salmon Recipe
  • Soak alder plank for 24 hours
  • Wash and dry 2 ½ to 3 ½ pound skinned fillet of salmon
  • Put salmon in 2 gal Ziploc bag with:
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup lemon or lime juice
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • Cut lemon zest (as little of the white peel as possible) from one lemon and put juice of lemon in with salmon
  • Marinate salmon for about 30 minutes
  • Rub salmon with olive oil and put on soaked plank and sprinkle with:
  • Chopped lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • Ground pepper
  • 6 or 8 dashes of Tabasco
  1. Put meat thermometer probe in salmon—if possible use probe
  2. with wire attached that extends outside grill
  3. and insulate thermometer wire with fabric tube oven gasket
  4. from salmon to exterior of grill—and put plank and salmon on hot grill
  5. and cook with grill covered until internal temperature of salmon is 140.
  6. Remove and serve immediately—the plank will be charred
  7. so needs to be put on a lined platter or tray
  8. I use a Maverick Redi-chek or Polder thermometer
  9. and a Weber charcoal grill and alder planks that are 7.5”x14.5”x1/2” from Just Smoked Salmon!
