Ingredients

  • 2 pounds wild salmon fillets I used two 1-pound filets
  • 2 cedar planks soaked in water for at least 20 minutes

Marinade:

  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon whole mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

Instructions

  • Preheat grill to high heat for 15 minutes and then adjust to medium low (if using charcoal grill, simply move the coals to one side after heating.) I used my Traeger and after it hit high heat, I reduced the temperature down to 250 degrees F.
  • Place rinsed and patted dry salmon fillets skin-side-down on cedar plank.
  • Whisk together mustard marinade ingredients and spread on top of salmon. Place cedar plank on cool side of grill if using coals, cover the grill and cook for 30 minutes or until salmon is cooked through to 140°F.
