We’ve already shared the classic Cedar planked salmon recipe with you. So we thought we would put a twist on this Pacific Northwest favorite with a maple, orange and wasabi glaze. Serve it with grilled green onions, or vegetable of your choice.

Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 5 x 11” Cedar Plank
  • 4 (6 ounce) Salmon Fillets
  • 2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • 2 Oranges – juice 1 orange, slice other orange into wedges
  • 1 Tbsp. Wasabi Powder
  • 1 Bunch Green Onions, 2 thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. Black Sesame Seeds

Chef's Tip

Cedar and Alder are classics
for planking. Alder is less
overpowering but still
creates a delicious smoky flavor.


  1. Soak Cedar plank in hot water for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Mix maple syrup, orange juice and wasabi powder in a small saucepan; cook over medium low heat to reduce until it is starting to become thick, about 8 minutes.
  3. Preheat grill to 400°F.
  4. Place salmon fillets on plank, brush with glaze then sprinkle with sliced green onion and sesame seeds.
  5. Brush remaining whole green onions with glaze.
  6. Grill planked salmon and green onions until cooked. The green onions will cook faster than the salmon.
  7. Serve planked salmon and green onions with orange wedges.
  8. Enjoy!
