Planked Salmon with Maple-Mustard Glaze

Planked Salmon with Maple-Mustard Glaze Recipe

We can thank Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest for this simple method of cooking whole sides of salmon. They would nail the salmon to cedar or alder wood planks and set the planks around a central fire, where the fish slowly absorbed smoky aromas. I like to glaze the salmon with a mixture of maple syrup and mustard.
