Difficulty: 3/5

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 30-40 min

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 700 g salmon filet, skin on
  • 100 g fresh dill
  • 100 g fresh parsley
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 zest of a lime
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts, raw chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp brown sugar
  • fresh ground pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Soak your cedar plank thoroughly for several hours, it will prolong the burn time by several critical minutes when grilling.
  2. Preheat your Broil King® Keg or gas grill between 350°F (180°C) and 400°F (200°C). Follow the standard start-up instructions then preheat the grill completely.
  3. Remove your cedar plank from water and pat dry. Rub with oil thoroughly on the top then place the salmon on the oiled side.
  4. Sprinkle on sugar, salt, black pepper, pine nuts and lime zest.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil then rub thoroughly.
  6. Dice herbs and blanket the salmon filet.
  7. Grill directly for 30-40 minutes or until the ribbons of fat start to melt and run. Less time delivers a more butter salmon while more time makes it flaky.
  8. Remove and gently scrape away the herbs.
  9. Serve and Enjoy!
