Planked Salmon with Grilled Tomato Salsa
- Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Place fish, skin side down, in a shallow dish. For rub, in a small bowl stir together brown sugar, salt, and black pepper. Sprinkle rub evenly over salmon; rub in with your fingers. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 to 24 hours.

- For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around edge of grill. Place fish, skin side down, on cedar grill plank. Place plank in center of grill rack. Cover and grill for 18 to 22 minutes or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust heat for indirect cooking. Place plank on grill rack over the burner that is turned off. Grill as directed.)
- To serve, cut salmon into four or six pieces. Slide a spatula between the fish and skin to release pieces from plank. Serve with Grilled Tomato Salsa.

(For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place tomatoes in basket on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.) Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

This looks good, but I'd like the sub-recipe for the tomatoes.
