  • 1 seedless cucumber, sliced into thin half-moons
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  1. Heat grill to medium. Season the salmon with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; arrange on the plank.

    Place the plank on the grill and cook, covered, until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily, 12 to 15 minutes.
