Cedar Planked Salmon with Salsa Verde

A classic cedar planked salmon with a punchy and flavorful salsa verde that is ready for you to use up any soft herbs that are floating around your produce drawer. 

Serves – 4
Total Time – 30 minutes


For the Salsa Verde

  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 cup mixed Herbs, such as parsley, cilantro, basil, or dill
  • 2 Tbsp Capers or Anchovies
  • 1 Lemon, zest and juice
  • ½ cup Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to 400˚ F. Soak the plank in hot water for around 15 minutes.
  2. Place the salmon portions on the soaked plank and grill with the lid closed for 15-20 minutes, or until desired level of doneness is reached. 
  3. While the salmon is cooking, make the salsa verde.
  4. Finely chop the garlic, herbs, and capers or anchovies into a medium bowl. Whisk in the lemon zest, juice, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste and adjust as necessary.
  5. When the salmon is finished cooking, remove from the grill and serve with the salsa verde. This would be great over some rice or potatoes!
