Nothing says summer like fresh salmon and fruit. For this recipe, we decided to combine mango and strawberries to create a delicious salsa to pair with our Cedar planked salmon. The Cedar plank adds a delicious smoke flavor and keeps it from drying out. Enjoy!

Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cedar Planks
  • 3 lbs. Salmon Fillet (2 large pieces)
  • 2 large Mangoes, diced
  • 8-10 Strawberries, diced

Chef's Tip

This recipe can also
be made on the grill,
just cook over direct
heat until done.

Directions:

  1. Soak the Cedar planks in warm water for 15 minutes.
  2. Combine mango, strawberries, jalapeño, red onion, parsley, and lemon juice in a medium bowl. (It should be kept in the fridge until ready to use, and it tastes even better after it sits for a few hours.)
  3. Preheat the oven to 400F with a rack placed in the middle.
  4. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place skin side down on the planks, position the planks on a baking tray and transfer to the oven. Bake for about 10 minutes (4 minutes per half-inch thickness of salmon, as determined by the thickest part of the fillet).
  5. Finish the fillets under the broil for about 3 minutes until golden-brown.
  6. Cut each fillet in half lengthwise and serve with fruit salsa.
  7. Enjoy!

For full fillets of salmon, make sure to use an XL plank, like these
