Easy Cedar Plank Salmon - Enjoy this wild and fresh salmon filet that's been rubbed with Cajun seasoning and grilled slowly over soaked cedar plank to bring a delicious smokey flavor to your fish.
Soak the plank in water for at least 1 hour (if you have time, soak it for 4 hours). I normally fill my kitchen sink with water to cover the plank and I use canned foods as weights. This is a great way to keep the plank underwater.
Meanwhile rub the Cajun seasoning, salt, and ground pepper over the salmon.
Preheat the grill* on high heat. Place the soaked plank on the grill for about 3-5minutes or until it begins to crackle and smoke. Place the salmon fillet with the skin down on the plank.
Cook for 12-20 minutes (it will depend on its thickness) or until salmon flakes easily.
Garnish with fresh parsley and squeeze lemon over salmon before serving.
