A Salmon Recipe cooked with cedar planks with a maple glaze.
Here is a very new way for you to cook salmon, on a board of cedar wood in the oven. Just the thought of it makes my nostrils twitch trying to pick up the scent.
You can also use the planks for cooing fish or meat on a braai, just use an indirect method of cooking.
If you can’t get hold of cedar you can use oak or any other option you can find. One that has been used to age wine in would be very handy.
If you cannot find any planks the maple glaze will still come in very handy.
1 . Pour the maple syrup into a pan
2 . Add the chopped ginger, lemon juice, soya sauce and chopped garlic cloves.
3 . Reduce for 20 min on low heat, simmer
4 . Put your cedar board in the oven for 15 minutes with some oil spread over it to toast.
5 . Slice the spring onions diagonally
1 . Sprinkle the spring onions on the toasted cedar board and place the salmon on top, skin side down
2 . Brush the glaze onto the surface of the salmon
3 . Pop into the centre of the oven an cook for 30 min at 180C
