    A neighbor gave me some salmon, so I decided to grill it up tonight

    Rhonda made a salad, and we tossed the grilled salmon on top

    Here's my story......

    Thanks for looking!

    Todd

    A couple small tail ends of the salmon fillets

    All the ingredients to brine the salmon

    Brining in a ziploc for about an hour


    Cedar plank soaked in water and on a hot grill until it starts smoldering


    Marinated salmon fillets resting nicely on the cedar plank


    About 30 minutes later on medium heat


    Money Shot!


    Off the plank and ready to eat


    Salad with grilled salmon, lemon flavored olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

    Salmon had a nice texture with a light cedar smokey flavor to it

    Thanks Scar!

    Rhonda is not a big salmon fan. 

    The last salmon fillets we got from SAMS tasted kinda "Fishy", so she's a little nervous to eat it

    These fillets tasted fantastic!

    I'll be smoking some tomorrow!!!

    Give her a hug for me and tell her we are kindred souls on the salmon. Only had it one time that I liked in at least 50 attempts from different cooks

    Todd,

    Since what I smoke is probably 90% Salmon, I love your post.  Might I ask what you used for a marinade?
