Cedar Plank Salmon
There are a variety of ways to grill salmon, but most make keeping the fish intact difficult. Using a cedar plank plus Casa M Spice Co® Hooked® Fish Seasoning is the best way to infuse it with a herbaceous, smoky essence while keeping the fish whole.
Whether you are looking to get healthy, or you just want to switch up your usual dinner, this recipe will get you right on your way. Don’t take our word for it, try it yourself! Look for fresh, wild-caught salmon. The meat should look plump and firm and should smell fresh, not fishy. If this is hard to come by, look for wild-caught salmon that has been vacuum sealed and flash frozen.
As always, from our table to yours... #SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #ChemistryInTheKitchen #CasaMSpice

LET’S GET COOKING
Cover cedar planks with water and let them soak for about an hour.
Preheat only one side of your grill to medium heat.
Remove planks from water and shake off excess water.
Place salmon on each plank and drizzle olive oil over the salmon.
Generously cover the salmon with Hooked®.
Place the salmon topped planks on the side of the grill without flame and close the cover.
Monitor the salmon, rotate it to make sure it cooks evenly and that the cedar plank doesn’t catch on fire.
Cook the salmon for about 20 minutes or until cooked to your liking. The salmon is done when the fat starts to render off the sides and the flesh turns opaque.
Remove the planks from the grill and carefully remove the salmon from the plank.
Add additional olive oil if you like and serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon and other grilled vegetables.
Pro tip: When finished, clean the cedar planks, let them dry out, and store them in a dry place. They can be used over and over again, just remember to soak them before each use. The cedar planks actually get better with each use due to their seasoned flavor.
