salt and pepper to taste
4 salmon fillets
1 15" cedar plank, soaked

Combine first four ingredients in a zip plastic bag, add salmon, and marinate in refrigerator for 10-20 min [note, half a day is great] Heat grill to 350, place soaked plan on hot grill, and close lid; allow plank to heat fo r3-5 min or until plan begins to lightly smoke and crackle. Remove salmon from marinade, place salmon, skin side down, on hot plank. Close lidd and cook t desired doneness (10-15 min).
