Lemon Pepper Cedar Plank Salmon
Celebrity caterer Andrea Correale, founder of the catering company Elegant Affairs, says it’s always a great idea to grill fish on cedar planks. “The cedar gives the fish a great taste, and it’s visually appealing as well,” says Correale. Her lemon pepper cedar plank salmon recipe uses lemon pepper (2 tbsp); one lemon; one clove garlic thinly sliced; chopped parsley (1/2 cup); sea salt to taste and extra virgin olive oil (1/4 cup). Soak the plank in cold water overnight or for at least three hours. After preheating the grill to medium, place the salmon on the plank and sprinkle with salt and lemon pepper. Put the plank on the cooler side of the grill, close the lid and grill 20 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl — zesting the lemon, slicing the garlic, and chopping the parsley. Combine with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
