Cedar Planked Cured Sockeye Lettuce Wraps

Serves – 4  
Total Time – 1 ½  hours (including cure time)

This is great sharing plate, with some bright and bold flavors.

Tip – Taking the time to cure results in a firmer fish that is also delicious served cold.

  3. Remove the salmon from the fridge and rinse under cold water, pat dry.
  4. Place the salmon on the plank and set it on the grill, cook for 12-15 minutes or until done.
