  • 4pc 8oz. Portions Sockeye Salmon
  • 1/2 Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

  2. Prepare the salmon by rinsing with cold water and patting dry with a cloth or paper towel.
  3. Pour half of the glaze over the salmon portions and put in fridge to marinate for 30 minutes. Save other half for finishing.
  4. Pre-heat your B.B.Q. to 375 degrees and place you cedar plank on the grill. Note: Cedar plank should be pre-soaked.
  5. Brush plank with olive oil and place salmon portions directly on the plank. Pour marinade over salmon and close the lid.
  6. Allow to cook for 10-12 minutes (depending on the thickness of the salmon) undisturbed. Avoid opening the lid as much as possible to maintain the maximum amount of cedar flavor.
