  • Soak the cedar plank in water for at least 1-2 hours.
  • Preheat grill to 400°.
  • Place cedar plank on grill for 10 minutes to preheat the wood.
  • As the cedar plank is preheating, start to prepare the salmon fillet. You will be cooking with the skin-side down. Squeeze one slice of lemon over the top of the salmon.
  • Add the salt, pepper, rosemary, and garlic powder to the salmon.
  • Lay the other 2 slices of lemon on the top of the salmon.
  • Flip the cedar plank so the top is now the bottom piece closest to the flames of the grill.
  • Set the prepared salmon fillet, skin-side down, onto the cedar plank.
  • Keep the lid closed on the grill. The salmon should be fully cooked in about 15 minutes.
  • Once fully cooked, combine it with a nice side dish such as roasted asparagus and enjoy!
