Cedar planked salmon is one of the most iconic Canadian dishes— a great one to have in heavy rotation during the summer months. It’s nice when the smell of the smouldering cedar infuses not only your fish, but your back yard with a wonderful aroma.
You can use your favourite marinade when you plank a filet of salmon, or just sprinkle with salt and pepper and let the flavour of the cedar come through. Cedar planks are easy to find in the seafood section of Calgary Co-op stores.

And you’re not limited to salmon—steelhead trout can be substituted, or experiment with thicker filets, like fresh halibut, which will require a slightly longer cooking time.
