  • 4 Salmon fillets (I used coho)
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2-3 whole cloves Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper
  1. Start by wetting down the cedar plank a little. Let some of that moisture seep into the wood. Dry it off with a paper towel and rub it down liberally with olive oil.

  2. Now make the glaze. Add the balsamic vinegar, garlic cloves and honey to a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until it is reduced by about half or slightly more. Stir in the butter and set aside.

  3. Salt and pepper both sides of the fillets liberally. Lay them, skinned side down onto the cedar plank. 

  4. Brush them all with the glaze, then set the plank on a baking sheet and bate at 350°for about 10 minutes, then brush on more glaze. Bake another 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how thick the salmon is. It should be flaky and pink but not raw pink in the middle. 

  5. Serve hot on a bed of rice.
