Cedar Plank Salmon with a honey and soya base glaze recipe

Today I decided to cook some salmon fillets on cedar planks! I decided to cook something pretty healthy for a change. I decided to use a honey and soya base glaze/sauce on the salmon fillets which will make your taste buds dance! Well let’s get grilling! You can use pretty much any time of BBQ for grilling these but I decided to use my Kamado Joe cooker.


2 (12 inch) untreated cedar planks
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons of fresh squeeze lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup honey
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


1. You want to soak your cedar planks in water for a good 30 minutes;

2. Pre-heat your BBQ to 375 Degrees Fahrenheit;

3. In a medium sauce pan bring all the ingredients to a simmer over medium-high heat for 5 minutes then             reduce to a medium low heat and simmer for another 15 minutes. Ensure that you stir occasionally;

4. Now place your salmon fillet on the cedar plank;

5. Sprinkle a little brown sugar on the salmon fillet;

6. Put a light coat of honey on the salmon fillet;

7. Place slices of lemon on top of salmon fillet;

8. Place the salmon planks with the salmon fillet on the BBQ ounce half way cook start glazing every                 minute or so. When applying glaze remove lemon then re-put the lemon on top.

Apply some glaze/sauce

9. Once the salmon fillet are cooked fully cooked. It will turned opaque in the center or cook to taste!               You can serve with fresh glaze on top of the salmon fillet on the plate!

 Ready to serve!
