cedar grilled salmon

to say things have been a bit busy would be a serious understatement. balls to the walls busy would probably be more accurate. 

but that's just how the cookie crumbles when you are running around trying to get multiple businesses going. because heaven forbid i just deal with one problem at a time.

between wes working more than forty hours a week at the restaurant he manages + working catering events with me on his days off and my job juggling we have been eating a lot of in'n'out. oooops. 

in addition to an increase in burger intake, our dates are down to a minimum. yesterday we found ourselves both at home in the afternoon for the first time in weeks so we decided to put together something special. with minimal effort of course. 

cedar grilled salmon
serves: 2
prep time: 5 minutes
cook time: 20 minutes
total time: 25 minutes
ingredients: 2 x 6oz salmon filets. 4 lemon slices. 2 tbs dijon mustard. 1 tsp olive oil. 2 garlic cloves minced. 1 tbs brown sugar. 1 tbs chopped dill. 1 tsp salt. .5 tsp pepper. 1 cedar plank for grilling.

start by soaking your cedar plank for 1 hour. preheat your grill to a medium heat. make sure to only light half the grill as the salmon needs to cook on indirect heat.

in a small bowl, combine the mustard, oil, garlic, dill, sugar and half the salt and pepper. stir till combined.

season both sides of the fish with the rest of the salt and pepper. spoon the mustard mixture onto the fish and spread it over both sides.

place the side of the fish the skin was on down onto the cedar plank. top each piece of fish with two lemon slices.

place the plank on the side of the grill that is not on. cover and cook for 17-20 minutes until the fish is cooked through and the lemon is lightly grilled.
