Planked Alaska Salmon with Mediterranean Medley Gluten Free Source of Omega-3s


Serves 4 to 6
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Ingredients

2 Tablespoons chopped chives
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
2 Tablespoons of one of the following: fresh marjoram, Thai basil, basil, or oregano
1-1/2 pounds Alaska Salmon fillets or steaks
1/2 lemon
Seasoned salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
 

Directions

Soak wood plank in water 30 minutes to 2 hours.  Blend herbs.

Pat wood plank with paper towels and spray-coat or lightly oil one side.  Lay Alaska Salmon on coated side of plank.  Squeeze lemon juice on salmon; season liberally with salt and pepper.  Pat/rub 1 to 2 tablespoons herb blend on each salmon portion or all onto salmon side.  Let the salmon rest 5 minutes before cooking.

Heat grill to medium-high heat.  Grill salmon using indirect heat (not directly over heat) in covered grill for 10 to 15 minutes.  Cook just until salmon is opaque throughout.

Chef’s Tip: This recipe works great whether you use a plank or cook straight on the grill.  Or, bake at 400°F (6 to 7 inches from heat source) for 10 to 15 minutes.
