Grilled Plank Salmon

I have never made a Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon before, so when I was sent a wonderful gift of Cedar Planks and seasonings from Fire and Flavor, I was thrilled to try it. I love seafood and fish, lucky for me, I live on the water. The only fish my kids will eat is Salmon, so I just had a feeling they would love this way of grilling the Salmon. It is super easy and delicious.Fire and Flavor also sent me a Coffee Rub for meats and Salmon. I rubbed some on the salmon and off it went on the grill!

Salmon was delicious with Fire and Flavor Ancho Chile spices on hand cut fries.
Cedar planks have to soak under water for at least one hour.
This is the yummy coffee rub made of Chili Pepper, other spices, pure ground coffee, brown sugar, and salt.
Soak Cedar Planks under cold water so that they don't catch on fire on your grill!
I placed a big bowl full of water on top of the planks so that the planks would be submerged.
Place your lovely filet of Salmon on the plank.
Rub Coffee Rub all over the salmon. Rub, rub, rub, that's why they call it a rub....
Salmon is ready to go on the grill.
Set grill at 350 degrees or Medium setting. The grill's temperature kept raising to 400, so I would try to moderate it so that the Salmon would stay moist. Cook until Salmon is firm to the touch.
Verdict: I liked the coffee rub flavor, it tasted sweet and was a great combination on the Salmon. The Salmon was very moist. Pair it with a Chardonnay, delicious!
 Would I make it again? Yes I would. Another way to use this rub is to make a marinade with orange juice, Olive oil and coffee rub and let Salmon set in marinade in the refrigerator for a couple hours. This post has been linked up these wonderful blogs!Photobucket
