Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon

One of my favorite things about summer is the grill comes out from under its cover and the smokey taste and aroma of grilled meats and vegetables becomes something we can enjoy every night of the week.

cedar plank grilled salmon If you’ve never tried Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon, trust me, you are in for a treat. The grilling process may be new to you, but I think you may enjoy trying it because the outcome is an unforgettable flavor and a moist perfect salmon filet.  A salmon fillet grilled on a cedar plank takes on a light, smoky woodiness for a tender pairing of earth and ocean.

You’ll need to soak the planks for at least an hour before placing them on the grill, and while plain water works just fine, soaking them in wine or cider lends and extra bit of flavor to the final product. The planks themselves are easy to come by online or at hardware and other stores where grills are sold.

Grilling on a plank prevents over-cooking and the cedar plank adds flavor that is complimented by the Buzz Savories Spicy Beer Mustard/ Honey glaze. Overcooked and dry salmon doesn’t happen when the salmon grills on a steamy cedar plank.  The fish steams gently in the heat of the grill, staying incredibly tender and moist. It also picks up smoky flavors from the grill and woodsy flavors from the cedar, along with whatever was used to soak the planks.

One last Pro Tip: prepare to take some pictures because Cedar Plank Salmon on the grill looks as delicious as it tastes.

  • 1 grill

What You'll Need:

  • 2 Tb. Spicy Beer Mustard
  • 2 Tb Buzz Savories Honey
  • 1 tsp. Minced Rosemary

How To Prepare:

Grill Prep:

  • Soak cedar grilling plank in water to cover 2 hours, keeping it immersed. Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium-high heat for gas). Open vents on bottom and lid of charcoal grill.


  • Stir together mustard, honey, rosemary, lemon zest, and ½ tsp each of salt and pepper.
  • Spread mixture on flesh side of salmon and let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.
  • Put salmon on plank, skin side down (if salmon is too wide for plank, fold in thinner side to fit).
  • Grill with lid covering the salmon until salmon is just cooked through and edges are browned, 13 to 15 minutes. Let salmon stand on plank 5 minutes before serving.


Salmon can be grilled without plank over indirect heat for 8 to 15 minutes.
