In an ideal world, we would all sit down to dinner together every night at 6:00. In reality, we only get to have family dinners together three or four times a week. I feel like most days, I'm rushing around just to get something on the table quickly before someone has to run out the door.
This cedar planked salmon is a great meal to make when I need to get something on the table FAST. I don't have to worry about compromising quality for quickness when I make this dinner either. It's as healthy as it is quick - and it's delicious!
2 salmon filets (I used sockeye salmon)
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Combine sugar, salt, dill and pepper.
Sprinkle over salmon and refrigerate, uncovered for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
The aroma of the cedar roasting on the grill was intoxicating. The fresh cedar smell penetrates the salmon and leaves it with the most delicious flavor.
