Dale's Cedar Planked Salmon

 1 cedar plank, about 6" x 12"
 4 skinless salmon filets, about 6-8 oz. each (1.5 - 2 lbs. total)
 1 tbsp honey
 1 tbsp whole grain or Dijon mustard
 2 tbsp Dale's Reduced Sodium Blend
 1 tsp chopped fresh herbs such as tarragon, dill or parsley (optional)
 1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges, for serving (optional)

To begin making Cedar Planked Salmon first, soak the cedar plank in water for 1 hour.


Next, remove from water and place salmon fillets (skin side) down.


Then, in a small bowl, whisk together the Dale’s, mustard, honey and herbs (if using).


Continue to brush mixture evenly over each filet.


Meanwhile, heat ½ of a gas grill over med-high heat for 5 minutes.


Then, place the plank on the side of the grill, not over the flame.


Next, cover and cook through, about 25-30 minutes, or until internal temperature of the salmon is 125 - 130 degrees F (for medium rare to medium).


Then, place plank on a cooling rack and serve directly off plank.


Finally, serve with lemon wedges, if desired.


Note: You can also prepare this over a charcoal grill, prepared with coals on only ½ of the grill.
