wild salmon grilled on a cedar plank

Woodley’s Salmon Herb Marinade


3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped

1 Tbsp. fresh oregano, chopped (sprigs, too)

Sprigs of rosemary – have to use them if they are in your garden

¼ cup dry white whine

juice from 2-3 limes / or slices

2 Tbsp fresh parsley. Chopped

1 ~15-inch alder or cedar grilling plank

4 6-8 ounce fillets but can support what will fit on your plank


Soak the planks overnight if you get your act together. Even an hour should be fine. Get the grill heated to about 400 degreed. Put the planks out there for about 3 minutes and flip them over for 3 more. They will be producing some smoke which will be a welcome memory should you have transitioned recently from charcoal/wood to gas. Put the salmon right on the planks and cook about 10 minutes. One of the best fish I’ve ever tasted from the grill!

    I've made cedar plank salmon with a sweet marinade/sauce using honey, paprika, a little cayenne, and some sea salt. The trick is to use well soaked cedar and to keep it covered while cooking - really smoke the heck out of it without over cooking. Alaskan BBQ!

    Important note - make sure you are NOT using treated cedar.

    I suggest grilling vertically. Its really big in Argentina. You don't have to worry about soak the fish or flipping. Which we all hate to do because it all falls apart. I have been using a vertical grill for everything latleyand it cooks in have the time and evenly I may add because you are cooking both sides at the same time. Mike's vertical grill makes a great product. They have a video on their website so you can see for yourself. Enjoy!
