Jack Daniels Cedar Planked Salmon (Joan's Files)

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 10-04 Apr 2007

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 pieces filet of salmon
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup favorite barbecue sauce
3/4 cup Jack Daniels
1/4 cup honey
1 lemon -- (juice from)
1 orange -- (juice from)
untreated cedar plank
cut into pieces
[I like them cut into 13 to 15-inch pieces]

Art's Note: See the FareShare Website article on "Plank Cooking".

Last year I impressed people with this recipe. I served the fish directly
on the plank (I baked it in the oven not grill) and piped on mounds of
mashed potatoes made with horseradish also on the plank, garnished
everything with springs of fresh dill and sliced lemons.

Buy the cedar plank at a lumber store (usually I buy one long plank and
have it cut into equal sections of either 13 to 15 inches long). Then, I'll
have enough for several uses. One doesn't need to use Jack Daniels but I
love to cook with the stuff. For cedar planked salmon, one not need
marinade the fish either and may use other seasonings for planked salmon
such as coarse salt and coarse cracked pepper and Dijon mustard, slathered
on prior to grilling.

Mix marinade and place salmon in zip lock bag and marinade overnight or at
least 4 to 6 hours. Soak plank, covered in water for 5 or 6 hours. When
ready to use, preheat your grill to 350F or medium high heat. Place the
plank in the grill and heat each side for several minutes. Then oil (I use
spray oil) the plank on the top side and remove salmon from the marinade,
placing filets skin side down. Cover and grill about 20 minutes or until
fish is done. You may flip over the salmon once if desired. The plank will
smoke and if it catches fire have a spray bottle of water on hand to
extinguish any fire. My plank normally doesn't burst into flames and is
usually just charred on the bottom so it cannot be reused. Remove salmon
from plank and serve. I like to serve the salmon with rice pilaf or
potatoes and a green veggie such as roasted asparagus or steamed broccoli.

Yields 6 wonderful servings.

Notes : carefully remove used plank from grill and cool plank and discard
appropriately. Also may be oven baked! I have done it both ways!

Hallie's Note: Botanical and toxicology note: The 'cedars' found in North 
America, Thuja occidentalis (Eastern White Cedar) and Thuja plicata (Western 
Red Cedar) are not true cedars (Cedrus). The oils in the wood contain
properties which can be harmful under certain circumstances; (for instance,
remember cedar-lined clothes closets that kill moths?). Woodworkers are
warned not to work with cedar in enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces. One
of my reference books, Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Rockies by Linda
Kershaw, pub. by Lone Pine, states that "pregnant women and people with
kidney disorders should not take red-cedar teas and extracts internally.
Cedar oil can cause low blood pressure, convulsions and even death." Having
said all this, I doubt that there would be sufficient nasties in the type
of cedar planks sold in stores to harm you, particularly after they have
been thoroughly dried and heated and all that sort of stuff but I always
feel I should draw people's attention to these things. I wonder why we
don't hear of people using wood from other trees for 'planking' since we
certainly use them for smoking. I was thinking in particular of alder. I
will now go back to contemplating the snow still covering my lawn and
wondering how many mouse tunnels I will find when it goes.
