Grilling salmon is always a good idea, but grilling it on a cedar plank is an even better idea! The cedar wood gives the fish an unbelievably delicious smoky flavor. Like most of my grilled recipes, this one is very simple. As I always say, the grill does a lot in providing that delicious flavor that ovens can’t seem to beat. If your dad loves grilled fish, this recipe is a must for Father’s Day!
