Cedar Plank
Cedar Plank

Planked salmon is a method of cooking and smoking salmon that has been used for many years. One of the great advantages of living in the Pacific Northwest is that we get to enjoy Copper River salmon before anyone else, except Alaska, of course. Here's one of my favorite preparations.
