Lemon Garlic Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon

Summertime is the time we want to focus on being outside and enjoying fresh healthy meals. That is exactly what you get with this delectable dish! The bright flavors in the lemon marinade perfectly compliment the rich flavors of the salmon fillets. Not only is this dish delicious, but it is also incredibly easy to make! If you are frustrated and tired of fish sticking to the grill, have no fear, the cedar planks take all of that away. Also, along with giving you a bit of security, the cedar planks offer a wonder flavor to the salmon. It’s a win win!

Now that we have discussed the recipe, let’s talk a bit about nutrition and why salmon is a healthy choice. Salmon is a species that consistently delivers very levels high of omega-3 fatty acids and is packed with protein. The omega-3s found in salmon help reduce the risk of heart disease, while promoting a range of benefits from better brain function to healthy joints and skin. Salmon's high protein levels help boost metabolism and increase muscle mass. It is a great source of selenium, which can help fight heart disease, cancer, mental decline, and fight thyroid disease. Salmon is also a significant source of phosphorus.

Why leave the skin on, you might ask. We leave the skin on the bottom of our salmon fillet portions for two reasons: First, some of the highest omega-3 levels are found in the flesh along the central "fat line" next to the skin. Second, cooking this delicate fish with the skin side down as it finishes will help keep it moist throughout for a perfect presentation. As you finish cooking, you can easily separate the skin from the fillet as you remove it from the pan or grill.

  2. Combine the olive oil, mustard, lemon zest, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper in a 9 x 9 baking dish; mix well. Next, add the salmon to the dish and turn to coat evenly in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until ready to grill.
