- 2 Fillets Sockeye Salmon

Hibiscus adds a nice fruity note to the salmon’s flavor and the glaze really complements the fish’s natural characteristic color.
- Infuse the hot water with the tea leaves for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag.
- Place the tea in a pot with the sugar and cook down until syrupy, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
- Soak the planks in warm water for 15 minutes, preheat the grill or oven to 450°F.
- Remove any remaining pin bones from the fish.
- Brush on some of the glaze and season well with salt and pepper.
- Place the salmon on the soaked planks.
- Set the planks in the grill or oven and cook for 15 minutes or until done, brushing on more glaze every 5 minutes.
- Zest the lemon and finely chop the parsley.
- Add the garlic (finely minced) and a pinch of salt. Mix to combine.
- Serve the salmon on the planks, drizzle with a little more glaze and sprinkle on some gremolata.
