Cedar Plank Salmon w/ Spicy Orange Glaze
6 - 8 oz. Salmon fillet
12 oz. Patter Fam Spicy Orange Glaze
Red onion slices
Green onion for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Soak cedar plank for 20-30 minutes in cold water to keep it from burning. Cedar planks are available at most grocers in the seafood department. Place the cedar plank in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes to temper. When you hear the wood begin to pop, and smell the cedar smoke it is seasoned and ready for the fish. Rinse the salmon fillet with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place the salmon in a sealable plastic bag along with 1/3 cup Patter Fam Spicy Orange Glaze while the plank is coming up to temper status. When the plank is ready, place the red onion slices down on the cedar plank. Remove the salmon from the plastic bag and place the salmon fillet on top of the onions with the skin side down and salt lightly.
Lightly brush the salmon with the Spicy Orange Glaze to ensure a good covering on top. Place the plank with the salmon on the grill and bake for 35-38 minutes until the edges are turning golden brown. Remove from grill and garnish with green onion and orange slice.
Garnish Tip: Cut the green portion of a green onion in a long bias cut or strips and soak them in ice water. this will make green onion curls for garnish. Make a slice half way through an orange slice and twist each end in opposite directions to stand it up over the green onion curls on the cedar plank.
