  • 18 ounces salmon 3 fillets. I used coho
  • 2 tablespoons Gustus Vitae Jamaican seasoning or your favorite spice blend
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cedar plank
  1. Soak the cedar plank (completely submerged) for at least one hour.  2-3 hours is preferred. 

  2. brush salmon fillets with olive oil and sprinkle with Jamaican seasoning mix.

  3. place salmon on plank and set plank in a preheated grill (450 degrees) and close the lid.  Cook the salmon for 15-18 minutes to the desired doneness.

  4. remove salmon fillets from the cedar plank.  The skin should peel off easily.

    Serve immediately with your favorite sides.

  5. Discard the cedar plank after it has completely cooled.
