How to make Cedar Plank Salmon on the grill
- The first thing you want to do is soak your cedar planks in some cold water for a few hours. This will really ensure that the planks don’t char and catch on fire while grilling the fish.
- Make the honey soy marinade as listed in the printable recipe below.
- Now place your sliced pineapple onto the cedar planks. Then, place the salmon on top and season with salt, pepper, and the honey soy marinade. Then grill the salmon as directed below.

How to cook cedar plank salmon in the oven
- The process here is almost identical to cooking salmon on the grill. You’ll want to soak the cedar planks first, then place the fish on top (along with a baking sheet under). Then bake in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20-25 minutes.
How to tell if salmon is cooked
- This depends on how flaky you want your fish. I always go by the color of the salmon or how well it flakes when forked lightly.
- If you’re ever unsure, insert a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the fish and it should read at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
Can I reuse a cedar plank?
Absolutely! Well, okay that depends on how chared it got from the previous time it was used. Another thing to keep in mind is what was cooked on it previously. If you don’t want any flavors of the previous fish infusing into the new recipe, don’t use it. But in general, if you scrape off the older fish and soak the cedar plank in water s again it will still work just as great.
