1 untreated cedar plank (about 14" x 17" x 1/2")
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 (2-pound) salmon fillet (1 inch thick), skin removed
1. Completely immerse the cedar plank in water, placing a weight on top to keep it totally covered. Soak for at least 1 hour.
2. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
3. In a small bowl, combine the dressing, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil; set aside.
4. Remove the plank from the water. Place the salmon on the plank; place on the grill and close the lid. Grill for 10 minutes then brush the salmon with the dressing mixture. Close the lid and grill for 10 more minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
IMPORTANT: Cedar planks get very hot when grilling. Do not leave grill unattended. Always keep a spray bottle of water on hand in case of flare-ups, and use long-handled grill tongs to remove plank from grill. Properly dispose of cooled planks.
