Planked Salmon with Cucumber-Dill Sauce

Cedar plank salmon topped with cucumber dill sauce is a guaranteed hit. Grilled to perfection with a sweet smoked cedar taste, this flaky salmon dish could only get better with some tangy dill sauce. Topped with a yogurt based, cucumber dill sauce with a touch of horseradish, it's the perfect tangy meal all summer long.

Planked Salmon with Cucumber-Dill Sauce

Directions

  1. 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.

Place plank on grill rack over the burner that is turned off. Grill as directed.)
  4. To serve, cut salmon into four to six pieces. Slide a spatula between the fish and skin to release pieces from plank. Serve with Cucumber-Dill Sauce.
