You can serve this dish up directly on the plank! This is easiest accomplished by placing the whole plank on a baking sheet as the bottom may be sooty and will be hot.
1 cedar plank, long enough to fit salmon but short enough to fit inside your grill
2 pounds salmon fillet, skin on, no more than ¾” thick
flakey sea salt
Soak the plank in water, up to 2 hours. Meanwhile, coat the salmon meat with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Allow the salmon to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
Prepare your grill by bringing it up to medium-high temperature. Transfer salmon to plank, skin side down, in the center of your grill. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes.
Turn off or decrease the heat as much as possible and allow the salmon to remain on the covered grill an additional 6-8 minutes, or until reaching your desired doneness. Carefully remove plank from the grill and serve.
