BARBECUED CRACKLING CEDAR-PLANKED SALMON

Serves: 2   |   Preparation: 60 mins   |   Cooking time: 30 mins

  • 1 fresh cedar wood plank
    – 1⁄4 inch thick (soaked in water overnight)
  • 2 lbs fresh salmon filet
  • 10g ground black pepper
  • 200g brown sugar
  • 100g fresh dill
  • 10g coarse sea salt

Serves: 2
Preparation: 60 mins
Cooking time: 30 mins

  • 1 fresh cedar wood plank – 1⁄4 inch thick (soaked in water overnight)
  • 2 lbs fresh salmon filet
  • 200g brown sugar
  • 10g coarse sea salt
  • 10g ground black pepper
  • 100g fresh dill

1. Cut the cedar plank to length of the salmon filet and soak it, completely immersed, in cold, clear water overnight.

2. Prepare the salmon fillet and remove remaining bones if necessary.

3. Mix the coarse sea salt with ground black pepper, chopped dill and brown sugar.

4. Apply the mix of spices and brown sugar and gently rub it onto the meat of the salmon.

5. Place the seasoned salmon, skin side down, onto the soaked and wet cedar wood plank.

6. Barbecue the plank salmon on a charcoal- or gas-grill, with lid closed, for 30 minutes at 200°C, until the meat of the salmon filet solidifies and is developing a flaky texture, candied bubbles climbing out of the meat and the crust turning crunchy. Infusing smoke, as well as natural oils within the cedar plank, will produce a complex, aromatic wood flavour. The cedar wood plank should not catch fire during the cooking procedure.
