Orange Glazed Cedar Plank Salmon

Slowly but surely, I'm starting to find fish not so disgusting. I would go so far as to say the grilled salmon my husband made was even delicious. He got some cedar grill planks for Christmas and this was the first time the planks got used.

I forgot to take a picture of the salmon off the grill. The recipe was from the packaging on the Fire and Flavor grill planks. There was even a picture of the salmon on the front of the packaging, so I took a picture of the packaging to give you an idea of what the finished fish dish looked like.

There was hardly any fishy taste to this at all. The cedar plank does a good job of covering that up. We'll definitely be making this again over the summer.

Fire and Flavor's Orange glazed salmon
3 T Dijon mustard
3 T maple syrup (the real stuff, or it won't caramelize properly)
1 T balsamic vinegar
2 tsp orange zest
4 6oz salmon fillets
1 cedar plank soaked for 1 hour

Preheat grill to medium-low heat, about 350F. Combine mustard, syrup, vinegar and zest in a small bowl. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Brush fish with glaze. Place soaked plank on grill. Close lid and heat for 3 min. Flip plank with tongs and place salmon on heated side of plank. Close lid and grill for 12-15 minutes until fish is cooked to your liking. Remove plank from grill and serve.
