  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.
