Cedar Planked Smoked Salmon with Mango Salsa

Cedar Planked Smoked Salmon is our all time favorite way to cook a gorgeous salmon fillet.    It's quick and easy and we can have a healthy dinner on the table in no time at all.

Smoked salmon can be on the pricey side but if you have a few little tricks up your sleeve, your family can enjoy this gourmet dish for a fraction of the cost.

Start with Cedar grilling planks which can be found in most kitchen shops but we just order ours on Amazon.  It's easier and we can always keep a supply around inexpensively.    

These cedar planks can be bought in several size packages, we order the 8 pack since it's more cost efficient and they can found via our affiliate link right here, 12 pack of Cedar cooking planks or  10 pack of Cedar Cooking planks or a set of 8 planks and they also come in several different sizes here,  7 X 12 inch Cedar Grilling Planks.

This smoked Salmon was seasoned with store bought teriyaki sauce and smoked on cedar planks for about 10 minutes.  

The cedar gives the fish that gorgeous sheen and a light smoky taste.  It's usually served with Homemade Mango Salsa, Grilled or Roasted Asparagus and Brown Rice. 

So with a cedar plank or two and a bottle of store bought teriyaki sauce you can have a gourmet meal of cedar planked smoked salmon and not break the bank.    Just keep an eye out for salmon on sale or at your local warehouse store and enjoy this easy dish as often as you wish.   

Cedar Planked Smoked Salmon

Ingredients (serves 4)
  • 4 Salmon Fillets
  • 1/4 cup Teriyaki sauce

1. Soak Cedar planks completely submerged in water for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking
2. Place salmon fillets in a plastic bag or marinate container and pour teriyaki sauce over them.
3. Heat grill to high

5. Place planks containing fillets on grill and close the grill for about 10 minutes
6. Check for doneness, fillet should be flaky and cooked throughout. Remove entire plank with salmon.

You recently signed up to follow me on Linky Followers and I want to let you know that I will no longer be using LF. Unfortunately I have discovered some information about them that I am not thrilled with at all so I have removed their gadget from my site. I don't want to lose you as a reader and would love for you to continue following Serendipity and Spice. If you haven't checked out BlogLovin I highly recommend it- as it's the closest thing to GFC I have found.

    I hope you'll continue to follow!
