Plank Salmon Thai Style – Fish

BBQ Recipes, Fish

There is nothing like cedar scented salmon fresh off the barbeque. It’s the taste of summer. Grilling on cedar planks is not only impressive and easy but it is also a healthy alternative. The cedar is infused naturally through the heat of the barbie giving it that rich, smoky flavour.
