Cedar Plank Salmon

Serves 4

1salmon fillet, about 1 1/2lbs (750 g)

1/4 cup olive oil

1 lemon or orange, juice and zest

1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper


Marinate the salmon in remaining ingredients. Meanwhile, soak a piece of untreated cedar plank in cold water for about 2 hours (weighting it with something heavy), then place in a 450F/220C heated oven for 5-10 minutes. Remove the salmon from the marinade and bake on the plank until cooked, allowing about 10 minutes per inch (2.5 cm) thickness of fish.

TO BARBECUE: Soak the plank as above. Place salmon on plank. Put the plank directly on the barbecue grill. Close the lid and cook over medium-high heat for about 20 minutes.

Preparation time: 2 hours Cooking time: 10 minutes (20 minutes to barbecue) depending on thickness of salmon.
