  • 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


  • Soak the cedar plank (completely submerged) for at least one hour.  2-3 hours is preferred. 
  • brush salmon fillets with olive oil and sprinkle with Jamaican seasoning mix.
  • 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.
  • remove salmon fillets from the cedar plank.  The skin should peel off easily.
    Serve immediately with your favorite sides.
  • Discard the cedar plank after it has completely cooled.
