    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
    • 3 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar
    • 1 teaspoon dried dill
    • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

    1. Soak the cedar plank in water for at least 2 hours and up to 12.
    2. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
    3. Place the salmon on the plank, skin side down. In a small bowl, stir together the sesame oil, dark brown soft sugar, dill and sesame seeds. Stir in just enough water to make it liquid. Season with pepper and soy sauce if desired. Spoon the mixture over the salmon so it is fully coated.
    4. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the fillet can be flaked with a fork.

    I've made this recipe several times now... mostly at the request of my wife. When I say 'several times', I mean about twice a week for a month. This was my first cedar plank recipe and I was very pleased with the results. What an incredible flavor! Thank you.  -  15 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe was delish! Note that the spice mixture is not for marinating, but it's more of a thick sauce for topping the salmon during cooking. We did ours on the grill and served with the leftover sauce. Very good.  -  25 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
