Cedar Planked Salmon

Jim bought some cedar planks and really wanted to use them. We had salmon in the freezer so we decided to give it a shot. We used a recipe that came with the planks, which was a dry rub. We ate it with a side of roasted zucchini and wild rice.

Ingredients for dry rub:

2 tbsp. kosher or coarse salt
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. dried basil
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tbsp. dried tarragon (optional)

Cooking directions:
Use one fillet of fresh salmon and 3 tablespoons of the rub. Season the salmon with the rub and set salmon, skin side down, on soaked plank (instructions for soaking plank). Season with dry rub. Place the plank on a preheated grill with low to medium heat. Grill for 10 to 20 minutes with lid closed, until salmon flakes easily.
