Delicious Grilled Salmon


1 3/4 pounds Fresh Salmon
1 bunch of Chives or Green Onions[1]
1 Untreated Cedar Plank (I purchased mine at Whole Foods.)
inch Soak a cedar plank water for 12-24 hours
1 cup Maple Syrup, Grade B
3 tablespoons Ginger, freshly grated (see the best grater)
4 tablespoons Lemon Juice
3 tablespoons Tamari Sauce (I prefer San-J wheat free)


Prepare Glaze:
Place all ingredients in a small sauce pan and simmer until reduced to less than 1 cup. I find in Colorado altitude this takes about 1 hour. You can make this a day or two early. Just reheat to use.
To cook:
Place the soaked plank on a hot grill and let it blacken on one side, about 15 minutes. (You will hear it start to crackle.) Once it is black, turn it over. Lay onions on plank. Place salmon on top of that. Pour ½ of glaze on top of salmon. Close lid and grill on medium to high until salmon is cooked, approximately 10 minutes. Note: You may want to keep a spray bottle of water near by in case the plank starts to burn.




Here is a great easy dinner all planned out for you. The only thing you need to do ahead is the glaze. It takes no time to put together, just time to reduce on the stove.
