Cedar Plank Salmon with Maple-Mustard Glaze

Grilling with a cedar plank gives food an earthy, woodsy flavor and helps meats and fish stay super moist (not to mention the amazing aroma it gives off when you cook). Pair this Cedar Plank Salmon with Maple-Mustard Glaze with some roasted asparagus and you've got yourself a simple, tasty summer meal!

  • Cedar Plank Salmon with Maple-Mustard Glaze
  • Ingredients
    • 4 (5 oz.) pieces Atlantic salmon
    • ¼ tsp. salt, divided
    • ½ tsp. black pepper, divided
    • 3 Tbsp. maple syrup
    • 3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
    • 1 lb. asparagus
    • 1 tsp. olive oil

    Directions
    1. Use water, wine or cider to soak the cedar plank for about 60 minutes before grilling. The plank must be fully submerged under water, so place a heavy object on top of the plank, if necessary. 1. Preheat grill to medium, about 350-375°F. 1. Remove the skin from the salmon, and cut out the blood line. Season the salmon fillets with ⅛ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper and place them on a cedar plank. 1. Whisk maple syrup and mustard until combined, and brush about half the mixture over the salmon. 1. Place the cedar plank with salmon fillets on the grill. Start checking for doneness at about 12 minutes and about halfway through cooking, brush with the remaining maple/mustard mixture. The salmon is done when the internal temperature reaches 145°F and it flakes when pressed. 1. While the salmon cooks, cut the woody ends off the asparagus and discard. Coat the stalks with olive oil, ⅛ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Place on the grill, cover and allow to cook for 3-5 minutes, until soft and slightly charred. 1. Serve and enjoy!
