  1. Soak the cedar plank in water for at least 2 hours and up to 12.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C), or see Footnote for grilling instructions.
  3. Place the salmon on the plank, skin-side down. In a small bowl, stir together the sesame oil, brown sugar, dill weed and sesame seeds. Stir in just enough water to make it liquid. Season with pepper and soy sauce if desired. Spoon the mixture over the salmon so it is fully coated.
  4. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the fillet can be flaked with a fork.


  • Grilling Instructions:
  • Preheat a grill to medium heat. Place plank with fish on the grate and cover. Grill for about 25 minutes, or until fish can be flaked with a fork.

This was an absolute hit! I made it for my boyfriends family out at the cabin. We all loved it! I changed a couple of things. I made the brine and marinated in a large tupperware container for 2...

I have made this recipe so many times, I've lost count. It is my families favorite Salmon recipe. I have never made it on a plank, however. I just grill it on a piece of foil. A real treat!!!

Meh. It was decent at best. Needs more flavors. I marinated the fish for an hour and it still didn't pick up enough flavor. Maybe fresh dill next time?
