Prep time 15 min
Cook time 15 min
Serves 4 to 6
 
2 to 3 Tablespoons white vinegar
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons fresh chopped garlic
1 Tablespoon chopped Chipotle chiles*
 
*Canned chiles in adobo sauce. Remove seeds, if desired, to reduce heat.
  • Soak wood plank in water 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Sprinkle vinegar onto Alaska Salmon (1 teaspoon per individual portion or 2 tablespoons per salmon side). Blend remaining ingredients.
  • Pat wood plank with paper towels and spray-coat or lightly oil one side. Lay salmon on coated side of plank; spread 1 to 2 teaspoons rub mixture onto each salmon portion (not skin) or apply all of the rub to salmon side. Let the salmon rest 5 minutes before cooking.
  • Heat grill to medium-high heat. Grill salmon using indirect heat (not directly over heat) in covered grill for 10 (sockeye) to 15 (king, silver) minutes. Cook just until salmon is still pink in the very center, remove from heart, and let sit to self-cook for 5 minutes. Do NOT overcook!
