Chef's Tip

Hibiscus adds a nice fruity note to the salmon’s flavor and the glaze really complements the fish’s natural characteristic color.



  1. Infuse the hot water with the tea leaves for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag.
  2. Place the tea in a pot with the sugar and cook down until syrupy, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.


  1. Soak the planks in warm water for 15 minutes, preheat the grill or oven to 450°F.
  2. Remove any remaining pin bones from the fish.
  3. Brush on some of the glaze and season well with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the salmon on the soaked planks.
  5. Set the planks in the grill or oven and cook for 15 minutes or until done, brushing on more glaze every 5 minutes.


  1. Zest the lemon and finely chop the parsley.
  2. Add the garlic (finely minced) and a pinch of salt. Mix to combine.
  3. Serve the salmon on the planks, drizzle with a little more glaze and sprinkle on some gremolata.

*Keep a spray bottle of water handy in case of flare-ups.
