Serves 4 to 6
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes

1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon dried orange peel
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1-1/2 pounds Alaska Salmon fillets or steaks


Soak wood plank in water 30 minutes to 2 hours.  Blend all ingredients except Alaska Salmon. 

Pat wood plank with paper towels and spray-coat or lightly oil one side.  Lay salmon on coated side of plank; spread 1 to 2 teaspoons rub mixture onto each salmon portion (not skin) or apply all of the rub to salmon side.  Let the salmon rest 5 minutes before cooking.

Heat grill to medium-high heat.  Grill salmon using indirect heat (not directly over heat) in covered grill for 10 to 15 minutes.  Cook just until salmon is opaque throughout

Chef’s Tip: This recipe works great whether you use a plank or cook straight on the grill.  Or, bake at 400°F (6 to 7 inches from heat source) for 10 to 15 minutes.
