Tips & Notes

Make your own dry rub seasoning for multiple fish recipes. In a food processor, combine 2 teaspoons of lemon pepper with 1 teaspoon each of granulated garlic, dry tarragon, dry basil, paprika, kosher salt and light brown sugar.



  1. Soak plank in water for at least 4 hours.
  2. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Toss together potatoes, bell pepper, mushrooms, red onion, squash and zucchini with seasoning salt and oil.
  4. Coat both sides of salmon with dry seasoning and place on center of cedar plank. Add vegetables around salmon and squeeze juice from one lemon over the top.
  5. Place the plank in the oven for 8 minutes, then remove from oven and turn salmon over. Roast for an additional 8 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 120 to 130 degrees. Remove plank; garnish with lemon slices and serve.
