Planked Alaska Salmon
Recipe and photo courtesy of Alaska Seafood
- 1 Tbsp garam masala (Indian spice)
- 1–2 tsp packed brown sugar, to taste
- 1 tsp coarse kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1 1/2 pounds Alaska Salmon fillets or steaks
Soak wood plank in water for 1 to 2 hours. Mix all spices together to make rub.
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.
