Cooking salmon on a bbq can cause a messy situation, even if you use a grate or tinfoil. Luckily, there is a much tidier way to grill salmon, and it leaves you with a dish that’s full of unique flavour. Plank salmon, usually cooked on a plank of cedar, infuses the fish with an undeniable smoky woodiness that you have to try to believe.
