2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon fresh finely chopped thyme
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2-3 lb salmon fillet
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter
Directions for perfect salmon:
Preheat your grill to medium high – I set my Big Green Egg at 400 degrees F
Prepare your cedar plank – have it soak for at least an hour…and then spray some olive oil to prevent the salmon sticking
Put the salmon”skin-side” down on the wet plank
Mix your spices and your brown sugar in a small bowl
Massage the maple syrup onto the fish then pat a thick coating of brown sugar rub evenly over the top of the salmon.
Dot with little chunks of the butter, use more or less to your taste.
Grill (on a rack) above medium hot coals until the fish is cooked to your liking, I prefer my salmon med- rare 15- 20 min to med 20 – 25 min) in the center – can’t really mess this up – as long as the salmon flakes away with a fork and is nice and firm (use the finger tap test) and you’re golden!
Now that I smell of cedar smoke, I’m off to take a shower! Enjoy this recipe….I know we did!
