It’s fish Friday! Cedar planked salmon is a favourite in our house and this marinade of fresh ginger, garlic, cilantro, soy sauce, honey, sweet chili sauce, citrus juice and pepper flakes, adds layers of deliciously balanced flavour to the fish. Have a wonderful weekend!
- 3 tbsps Soy sauce
- A thumb size piece of fresh ginger
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 tbsps honey
- 2 tbsps orange juice
- 1 tsp orange zest
- 3 tbsps sweet chili sauce
- 1 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- Freshly ground pepper
- Thin orange slices
- Salmon filet (about 1 1/4” – 1 1/2 thick)
Cedar plank (pre soaked)
Place the cedar plank on a hot grill (350°F – 365°F) for 15 minutes until beginning to smoke.
In the meantime prepare glaze.
Add the first 9 ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil over med-high heat, stirring regularly.
Let simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Add the salmon (skin side down) to the smoking plank, use a brush to apply a layer of the glaze. Season with pepper and then add oranges. Close the lid and let the salmon cook for 6 minutes, then apply more glaze and let cook for another 6-8 minutes. (A thicker filet of Atlantic salmon will take about 4-6 minutes longer)
Remove plank to a tray or board and serve on the cedar plank.
I like to make a little extra sauce and reserve a 1/4 cup before brushing on the fish, then serve the reserved sauce with the meal.
I typically eyeball everything, so taste the glaze and adjust as required. Enjoy!
