untreated cedar planks, for smoking
medium onion, roughly chopped
cup maple syrup
salt and pepper
4 5-oz
portions of salmon fillet
lemon, for accent


Step 1

Immerse the cedar planks in cool water for 2 to 3 hours before grilling.

Step 2

Using an immersion blender or mini chopper, puree the onion and maple syrup together (alternatively, you can grate the onion using a box grater and stir this with the maple syrup). Add salt & pepper and pour this over the salmon portions. Cover and chill the salmon for a minimum of 30 minutes, up to 2 hours before grilling.

Step 3

Preheat the grill to medium high, and place the cedar planks on the grill for 2 minutes. Place the salmon fillets on the heated planks, 2 per plank and baste generously with any of the maple marinade that is left in the dish. Cover the grill and cook the salmon for 8 to 10 minutes, then remove and serve with a splash of lemon.
