We fish for salmon in Alaska and this is our favorite way to prepare.


  • 1 salmon fillet
  • unsalted butter
  • 2-3 cloves pressed garlic
  • couple drops of tabsco.


I do not soak cedar plank in water. Have had better luck with a 2 inch plank, lightly oil plank, place in oven on 350 for 10 minutes. Place salmon on board. Melt butter in small saucepan, add remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 minute, brush on salmon, place in oven on 350 until just done, do not over cook. Usually about 15 - 20 minutes.
